    5p> Lewmar 8 Plait (8PLT) Anchor Rodes are designed to ensure the pmooth running of the windlass.


    • Lewmar 8 Plait anchor rodes complement rope/chain gypsy windlasses
    • Chain is hot-dipped galvanized to minimize corrosion
    • Chain is welded for high strength; calibrated for even pitch
    • 8-Plaited nylon rope enables 50% more line in locker than 3-strand rope
    • Hand-sewn whipping guarantees against unraveling
    • Eliminates hocking and kinking
    • Resists stiffening with age

    Lewmar Premium 8-Plaited Rope General Features:

    • 8-Plaited nylon rope eliminates some of the service problems associated with the 3-strand ropes
    • 8-Plait uses 8-individual braided strands woven together that allow the rope to be relaxed
      • When under load, it tightens up to a firm lay
      • The higher the load the harder the lay becomes
    • Carries the same tensile strength as 3-Strand
    • Does not coil or create a "birds nest" in the locker like 3-Strand will. 8-Plait flakes and falls upon itself
    • Will not twist and knot up
    • Will not loop over onto itself
    • Less stretch so it will not bury itself deep into the gypsy's grip if the windlass is overloaded, which means less damage to the stripper
    • Pays off of the windlass into the locker much like chain, allowing for better use of smaller locker designs
    • 80% less prone to becoming stiff when used in salt water than 3-Strand
    • 8-Plait nylon rope is 1/3 more absorbent than 3-Strand rope. More absorbent means more weight; more weight means better fall into the anchor locker
    • LIne should be soaked in water (salt or fresh - it does not matter) to pre-lubricate the rope so it can be used in the windlass initially
      • When rope is used dry and new, there can be either slippage or sticking in the rope pocket of the gypsy
      • Once the rope is wet and used, it out performs the 3-Strand
      • The longer it is used the better it gets

    Note:  Lewmar products are designed for use in recreational marine applications.  Any commercial application is forbidden without the prior approval of Lewmar engineering and management.

    Note: We recommend you check your owner's manual or contact the windlass manufacturer for the correct chain/line, size and type for your windlass.
