Hold Fast Mooring Pendant (1/2 inch)
Mooring Pendant - (pronounced "pennant") - a special line that secures a vessel to a mooring buoy.
Northern sailors rely on "Hold Fast Mooring Pendants" to keep their vessels safe even during the worst Canadian winter storms.
"Midshipmans Brand" rigging shop custom fabricates the Hold Fast Pendants to be one of the toughest on the planet. The standard length is between 9 and 10 feet. Custom lengths can be made on request.
The "Hold Fast Mooring Pendant" starts with a half inch Samson double braid nylon line, where a galvanized or stainless steel thimble is spliced in on the buoy end and a large soft loop is spliced in on the vessel end. These already strong end splices are also whipped and stitch locked. The line is rove through a small surface float that makes it easy to pick up the pendant with a boat hook. Most pendants have two anti chaffing sleeves to protect the line from wear from rubbing on the deck as well as on the buoy (in salt water, barnacles and such can form on a buoy creating an abrasion/rub point).
Available for pick-up or prompt, free shipping in Canada and the continental US.
