    Default Re: Mooring pennants/ pendants

    Hi, Thanks for the interesting post. Would you have a drawing or sketch of the setup, trying to imagine what it looks like! Do you sell these BTW?
    Thanks

    I think the essence of his mooring will be 2 pennants each with a loop spliced into the top to go over cleat or sampson post and the other end spliced onto a thimble. This can be steel stainless steel or plastic. Obviously plastic won't last so long. The thimble distributes the pressure of the rope onto a hard material reducing chafing. Use one or 2 shackles at the chain but do make sure the pins are moused. ie tied with lock wire or a similar method to ensure the pin can not unscrew. Just tightening is not enough as jerking can unscrew them. ol'will
