This bridle system gives your boat a fighting chance to stay put on its mooring in rough weather.
This bridle takes the strain of the chain rode, thus offloading the gypsy on the windlass and reduces the stress on the windlass deck joint. It allows the load to be taken by the appropriate deck cleats that are designed for high loads. Reduces the wear on the boat, with all the load on the cleats via the bridle, so there is no noise, no chain jerking and snagging on the foredeck.
Three-strand nylon line stretches to absorb the shock loads from wind gusts and wave action. With the long bridle the chain is lowered below the waterline and offers better effective scope and additional shock absorption. Select a chain hook (sold separately) that fits the chain size of your anchor rode.
