Tugging / Open sea towing
Open sea towing
The Dynex towing rope floats and is easy to pull up through the fairlead and attach on the bollard. Each end of the towing rope is coverbraided to protect from onboard abrasion and eyes are protected with soft Dynex sleeves. The main rope can be with coverbraid and especially if the Dynex is stored on a winch between operations.
As the axial stiffness is similar to steel wire a additional section of nylon rope is used to dampen peak loads during towing.
