MOORING SYSTEMS

Call Us Button

Depending on bottom and seasonal conditions, the tackle on your mooring system could last as little as one year, or as
long as five. SDS understands these factors and can replace any failing tackle or install a complete new mooring system.

Mooring Systems - A Few Things To Consider 

IMPORTANT: If you decide to have a mooring buoy installed, remember that all mooring systems are not created
equal. All of SDS mooring systems are tailored to your specific vessel & use American made parts when available.

 

After Your Mooring Buoy Is Installed
Pendants, dock lines, and bridles typically fail at the chock. SDS recommends using chafe guards/protection to reduce chafing of your lines and check them on a regular basis.

Annual/Biennial Inspections
It is important to have your mooring system inspected and cleaned every 1-2 years and it is critical 
the anodes, seizing wire, and swivel are replaced at that time. No Exceptions.
