Snubbers serve 3 purposes.

  1. The more common but least important one is noise. They can stop that damn annoying slopping from side to side of the chain in the bow roller at 4am.
  2. The second purpose is to take the load of your anchor winch. Unlike back in the day when winches had 75mm main shafts today they can be as small as 12mm. So it is important that shaft doesn't get any shock loads applied or your wallet will have a bad day.
  3. The third and most important reason is to introduce some elasticity into your anchor rode if it's all chain. As chain doesn't stretch, or at least the good stuff doesn't, if the weather gets extreme the snubber gives it all some stretch and grow ability. In doing this it softens the boast ride and helps the anchor hold longer. If you have a Rope to Chain anchor rode then your snubber is already biult in.

So with all that in mind if you have 1000mm of 20mm rope as a snubber on your 30fter it's really a bit of a waste of time. A snubber should be thought of as a consumable as over a couple of seasons it should have be working hard enough, all without you noticing, that the rope is buggered and needs replacing. Think long, the longer it is the better it'll work and do so for longer.

In this section there is a range of Snubbers. Some are more price based than others and as with most of our stuff if what you want isn't there just give us a ring and we'll make exactly what you want for you.
