Anchor Bridles

Why use an Anchor Bridle?
  • Bridle takes the strain of the chain rode, thus offloading the gypsy on the windlass and reduces the stress on the windlass deck joint.
  • Allow the load to be taken by the cleats that are designed for high loads.
  • Reduces the wear on the boat, with all the load on the cleats via the bridle, there is no noise, no chain jerking and snagging on the foredeck.
  • If the bridle is long enough/and or has enough stretch it can absorb the shock loads from waves and wind gusts.
  • With the long bridle the chain is lowered below the waterline and offers better effective scope and additional shock absorption.
