Which mooring rope should I have?

What thickness should my mooring rope be?

Mooring ropes - We offer a wide range of high-quality ropes that are easy to use and durable. Among our favorites are both a three-strand and an over-braided mooring rope, available in many different colors.

Our bestseller among three-strand mooring ropes is Storm, which has built-in shock absorption throughout the entire length of the line. Additionally, you can easily customize the length yourself with a convenient shoemaker's splice. With our mooring ropes, you can be confident that your boat is safe and stable at the pier or natural harbor.

If you prefer braided mooring ropes with built-in shock absorption throughout the entire length of the line, you can choose StormX, an updated version of the mooring rope Storm with a sleek over-braiding in several different colors.


The right dimension for your mooring ropes

The table shows which dimension we recommend for mooring ropes used in a sheltered location. If the boat is moored/docked in a non-protective environment (e.g. extreme winds) we recommend you go up one dimesion (for example from 12 mm to 14 mm).

Please note that shackles, hooks and other metal pieces used in combination with the mooring line usually mean the rope strength is decreased. A line generally has a higher breaking point compared to the metal pieces.

Care for your mooring ropes

Taking your mooring ropes home and washing them immediately after the boat is taken out of the water will further extend the life of your mooring ropes. Scraps of sheets or halyards should never be used as docking/mooring ropes; they are completely non-elasic and can therefore easily snap. In addition, the boat's cleats can easily be damaged.

How to wash your ropes

When do replace your mooring/docking lines

If the mooring/docking line is damaged it should be replaced immediately. Remember that every knot or other breakpoint entails a reduction of the rope's strength. Don't forget, the rope (cordage/line) should not be placed through a ring or around a beam as this created wear-and-tear on the rope. We sell additional chafe guards/wear protection that you can use for additional protection.

Important to remember when mooring

Any cordage used when mooring needs to have a high tensile strength, be able to withstand wear-and-tear and manage jerking and sunlight. We use maximum UV protective agents in the ropes, which will ensure that your mooring ropes last for many seasons on board.

Shock-absorbers: external or built-in?

Shock-absorbers on a mooring line are used to absorb the jerking motions that can arise from waves, wind and other boats. It helps the line by creating a rocking motion without rough jerking.
Dockline, Storm, and Storm X are elastic mooring ropes, which means they have built-in shock absorption throughout the entire length of the line. This means that no extra mooring springs or rubber springs are needed.
Flexline, Superior and Polysoft should be supplemented with shock-absorbers, e.g. Forsheda-springs or other similar absorbers.
