Anchor Snubber, Bridles, Lines & More
Anchor snubbers, bridles, lines, strops, snubber hooks and catamaran bridles for supplementing ground tackle systems. We are constantly improving our products with going through a dozen or more modifications over the years. Our products are highly functional for their respective use and they are well-made. We use high-quality materials and we're sticklers about craftsmanship. We hope our passion is obvious when you receive your product.
DIFFERENCE IN APPROACH
Most manufacturers size their snubbers and bridles using boat length and then offer one length in each respective diameter. We don't understand this approach. Take a Nordhavn and a Beneteau, both just over 50', using the boat length method for sizing, their recommendation would be 1" for both yachts. Using the same set of conditions at anchor to calculate the load on both boats the Nordhavn would generate 3168 ft/lbs and the Beneteau would generate 1459 ft/lbs. 1" would likely be the correct bridle size for the Nordhavn but it would be grossly over-sized for the Beneteau which should use a 5/8" bridle. Moreover, having length options is important given the range of conditions experienced at anchor. Full-time cruisers should opt for a bridle length approaching the length of their boat while the weekender who is assured a protected anchorage could probably get by with a 24 footer. In the off-season, we offer a made-to-order option for many products where you can spec the length, chafe, boat end treatment (whipped or soft eyes) and trim color. We also have "stock" products available in several lengths which we make during the winter and put on the shelves for in-season sales.
