Benefits

Environmental Conservation 

The Hazelett Elastic Mooring System, connected to a block or Helix screw anchor, floats above the seabed with a minimal environmental footprint. Hazelett Marine is involved in several eelgrass restoration projects.

 

Point Load Reductions

Securing vessels with Hazelett Elastic Rodes will reduce point loads at connections points (from docks to anchors and from deck cleats to anchors) by approximately fifty percent. 

 

Wind Load Reductions

Boats secured with Hazelett Elastic Rodes stay pointed directly into the wind with a more constant, gentle pull.

 

Increased Mooring Density

Hazelett Elastic Mooring Systems can be set up with as little as one-to-one scope at high water. More than twice as many boats to be moored in the same square footage with boats on chain with three-to-one scope.

 

More Gentle Dock Motion

Docks and wave attenuators anchored with Hazelett Elastic Rodes are tensioned at low tide, so they stay put at low tide. As the tide rises, the elastics stretch. Docks and wave attenuators secured with Hazelett Elastic Rodes have a more gentle motion and are easier and safer to walk on in rough weather.
