Anchor lines for boats & yachts

A good anchor harness on board is an important contribution to safety and thus enjoyment of sailing or motor boating. Especially in areas like the Mediterranean, anchoring is part of everyday life. Practical and reliable equipment is therefore indispensable. The combination of anchor, chain leader and anchor line is common on smaller boats. On larger yachts, anchor lines are usually used for the second anchor or the stern anchor. The length and strength of the anchor line depends on the area, the type of boat and its weight. Since the storage space on smaller yachts is usually limited, fasteners without fixed thimbles are often used as anchor lines and, in the worst case, knotted together. This is dangerous in strong winds, because knots considerably reduce the breaking load of a line. Even a bowline as an eye for the anchor shackle does not have the strength of a firmly spliced thimble. A special anchor line with sufficient length and strength is therefore an investment that can save the boat from running aground, especially in an emergency in bad weather.

Anchor lines are mainly made of polyester. This material has many advantages. It is relatively stretch-free, but still elastic enough to compensate for the boat's heave caused by wind and swell and thus prevent the anchor from breaking free. Polyester is very strong with good breaking and working loads. Twisted 3-sided, it does not throw any kinks. The line unwinds quickly and cleanly and does not stick to anchor roller or fittings. This increases safety when anchoring. The rope is also ready to go out immediately after retrieval. Braided anchor lines are absolutely kink-free and extremely low-stretch. The splicing in of thimbles, however, is somewhat more complicated. The thimble for the anchor head should be rustproof and firmly spliced in. Rusty thimbles and anchor shackles can wear through the eye in the dew in the long run.

A new development are anchor lines with a lead insert. The more horizontal the anchor chain and anchor line lie on the bottom, the better the anchor's holding power. Conventional lines made of polyester are too light for this purpose and have to be set at the appropriate length. Innovative lines with a lead insert sink immediately and provide the optimum pull. The length can be reduced. It may also be possible to dispense with a chain leader on lighter boats. Due to a special processing, no lead can be washed out into the water. The new anchor lines are harmless to the environment. High-quality anchor lines in brand quality for every area of use are offered by compass24.com.
