Talamex Braided Anchorline with Lead
DescriptionReady-to-use anchor lines made of braided polyester with lead cord in the core of the line, including a stainless steel thimble.
The polyester line is very suitable as anchor line because it sinks, is abrasion-resistant and has enough stretch to absorb the forces during the anchoring of, for example, the waves. Because the line is provided with a lead cord, the anchor will bury itself faster and better, which reduces the chance of a scratching anchor.
The required length anchor line is determined by the water depth on the spot and the currently prevailing wind power. On average one takes ca. 5 times the water depth as length for the anchor line. In low wind one can often do with less line and in heavy weather (wind force 5 and more) the length goes up to 7 times the water depth.
The diameter of the line is determined by the boat length and weight of the ship.
