The Big-e Storm Pendant System

big-e-pendant-logo-newThe Big-e Storm Pendant System* is the ultimate solution when it comes to protecting your boat in rough seas. If you must leave your boat moored during a major storm or hurricane the Big-e Storm Pendant System will provide far greater protection from breaking loose than conventional mooring pendants.

Our Big-e Elastic Storm Pendant offers more Strength and stretch than traditional nylon and polyester pendants lines. With 33,000 lbs of breaking strength and inner rubber cords for shock absorption, these elastic systems can cut down on the peak loads created during heavy weather events. Cushioning these extreme shock loads helps keep deck hardware and lines going through the chocks from breaking down prematurely. This enables these vital components to retain their strength and structure for when you really need them.

Volumes, have been written about the necessity of stretch in the lines attaching your vessel to its mooring. When the extreme forces of heavy weather are causing the boat to fetch up hard, and the chain catenary turns into a solid bar of steel, elasticity can play a vital part in keeping your boat safe.

The standard length pendant line with its 15 percent stretch, falls far short of providing you with the elasticity needed to stay connected to your mooring. It takes 25 ft. of ¾" nylon line to give you 4 feet of stretch. Our basic 12 ft. long Big-e Storm Pendant gives you 7 feet of elongation when you need it most. That's a little better than 58% Stretch! Read more about our Big-e Storm Pendant, Eco-Mooring Rode, and the revolutionary Eco-Mooring System here.
