Mooring Tackle

2 posts in this topic

I am replacing my mooring lines on my mooring tackle and I have a  new 1/2" galvanized sling link and two  3/4" galvanized thimbles for the pendant lines. Is there an easy way to get the 3/4" thimbles on to the 1/2" sling link?

I recommend using shackles from the pendant thimbles to the sling link.  If you ever need to replace a line it's a lot easier.  There is no easy way to get the thimble on the link without opening up the thimble.
