HEAVY MARINE & INDUSTRIAL TOW LINES

We custom assemble all types of Mooring Lines, Dock Lines, Anchor Lines, Hawsers, Towing Lines, Towing Hawsers, Towing Bridles, Winch Lines, and Recovery Tow Ropes using the best materials and methods the industry has to offer. All our lines are custom made-to-order per the customer’s specifications. Please consider the information below and utilize the worksheets to help specify your Tow Line, Towing Hawser, Tow Bridle, Winch Line, and or Recovery Tow Rope. As stated we also custom assemble custom mooring lines, dock lines, and anchor lines.
Working Load Considerations: For Ocean and Commercial Towing Applications the W.L. is preferred to be equal to the fully loaded weight of the towed vessel, but for large vessels, ships, and equipment this may not be practical and too expensive. For lighter duty applications, practicality, pleasure marine, lake applications, storage concerns, and or budgetary considerations the W.L. is often chosen to be 1/2, 1/3, or some other fraction of the fully loaded weight of the towed vessel. We encourage the owner to consult with the manufacturer, insurance company, and or other authorities of jurisdiction as to provide their recommendations and industry guidelines. The manufacture may have to provide an engineered calculation as to what the W.L. should be for their specific vessel, ship, equipment, and under what circumstances (towing speed for example).

rope making machiene

tow rope
Example of a typical tow bridle assembly: To the left are the two black double braid nylon stern legs that connect to the stern of the towing boat’s cleats. The relatively long 12-strand Dyneema® tow leg is joined to the 2 stern legs using small soft covered eye splices, while the other end of the tow leg is provided with a hard eye splice using a heavy duty stainless steel wire rope thimble spliced to a stainless steel Wichard quick release snap shackle. At the top is the optional snubber line. The snubber line provides for ease of connection to the tow leg and allows the towed boat to be put underway with the snubber line still attached. Both ends of the snubber line are provided with heavy duty stainless steel wire rope thimbles. One thimble will receive the tow leg’s snap shackle while the other end of the snubber is provided with a stainless steel safety bolted shackle, which connects to the towed boat's bow eye. Note the additional sewing / whipping / lashing used to seat the rope within the thimble. As with all of our lines, our Tow Bridle Designs are fully customizable and made-to-order per the customer’s specifications.
tow line
Fully Specified Ocean Tow Bridle, St. Croix USVI: 65 ft Hatteras Yacht towing a 32 ft Century. For this tow bridle the W.L. was chosen to be 10,000 lbs minimum, which is the estimated fully loaded weight of the Century.
Assembly: The two 40 ft stern legs are 1-1/4” black double braid nylon rope with 18” covered eyes for connecting to the Hatteras’ stern cleats. The other end of the sterns legs are each spliced with a small 6” covered eye splice used to join to a 6” covered eye splice of the relatively long 5/8” x 150 ft 12-strand Dyneema® tow leg. The other end of the tow leg is provided with a hard eye splice using a heavy duty stainless steel wire rope thimble spliced directly to a Tylaska T-30 large bail trigger release shackle. The T-30 connects to a 10 ft snubber line also made of 12-strand Dyneema® rope. Both ends of the snubber line are provided with heavy duty stainless steel wire rope thimbles. One thimble will receive the tow leg’s T-30 while the other end of the snubber is spliced directly to another Tylaska T-30 large bail swivel snap shackle, which connects to the Century's bow eye.
