Mooring Pennants and Custom Splicing

Our mooring pennants are crafted from double braid line, featuring a polyester cover and a nylon core. This combination allows for the greater abrasion strength of polyester with the elasticity of nylon. All pennants include properly sized stainless steel thimbles and a hardened steel oval ring. A flexible nylon chafe sleeve is standard to help prevent wear when contact is made with the boat. All of our pennants are assembled in house to ensure the highest quality. We even supply them to other mooring companies and boat manufacturers!

Cyclone Mooring Pennants

Cyclone mooring pennants are made from STS-12 (Endura 12) line which is constructed from Dyneema fibers.

Cyclone pennants are part of a system, and are attached to the upper end of a standard pennant, and have the following advantages:

Greater tensile strength allows a smaller diameter line to be used where the pennant is run through chocks and cleats.

Very little stretch and elongation means greater resistance to chafing in storm conditions and less heat build up.

We stock some 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4 variations however most Cyclone pennants are custom made to fit your boat. Give us a call or e-mail to discuss.


Gilman Softlite Buoys

Gilman Softlite buoys offer a number of advantages over a standard hard sided buoy.

Buoys are constructed with a soft foam collar and are sized appropriately to contain the metal pennant hardware so that it does not damage the hull of your boat.

The soft collar also acts as pennant storage when you are away from your mooring. This keeps the pennants clean and dry, and makes retrieving pennants much easier.

Buoys have a 3 inch hole that will hold your pick up buoy in the top which prevents it from getting tangled while you are away.

We typically stock buoys in 3 sizes. All buoys have a white collar and the lower portion is colored blue.
