Marine Moorings - Single Point

Overview

With the acquisition of Glasgow based firm FPM Henderson, Gael Force have strengthened their position as a leading specialist in mooring systems. Together at both our Inverness and Glasgow premises we assemble systems; cutting chain, splicing ropes and seizing shackles before palletising ready for delivery to site.

Single point systems, sometimes referred to as swinging moorings, vary for many types of craft and situation. Size and displacement of boat, seabed and location will all determine the system put in place. At Gael Force we can design and calculate the right system for you, whether it’s a single concrete block or a type-approved anchor mooring.

We can provide answers to the most commonly asked questions, and more, including;

Anchors - Which is the most appropriate for my yacht - clump? Self righting? Non self-righting?
Chain - Can I use second hand? What about ex-mining chain?
Shackles - What should I use with the chain I've selected? What about commercial galvanised shackles?
Swivels - Do I really need these?
Rope - Do I have to use multiplait? What about polysteel?
Buoys - How do foam filled compare with inflatable?
Tackle - How can I work out the size of anchor and chain to use on my boat?
