Protecting mooring warps with chains

Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
Rough harbour walls and marina cleats can badly chafe mooring warps.

Why address this?
This type of chafe can dramatically reduce the service life of expensive warps.

How to address this?
Place chains on the ends of the warps to prevent this type of chafe.
