Brief : SAGT supplies a wide range of mooring tails to suit different dimensions steel wire mooring ropes. We can offer both single leg TAILS and double leg endless RINGTAILS. Mooring tails are typically supplied in lengths of 11 m with 2,0 m and 1,0 m covered eyes. Studies performed by OCIMF have indicated tail lengths of 22 m for exposed berths. Tails are to be connected to the primary mooring line by cow hitch or by shackle or link (typically Mandel, Tonsburg, or Boss).

Because synthetic ropes are likely to deteriorate more rapidly than wire ropes, tails should be at least 25% stronger than the steel wire ropes to which they are attached (NOTE: +37% for Nylon).

The mooring tails should be inspected frequently and replaced at regular intervals. (18 months as per OCIMF recommendations.
