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 connection 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 can be moored in the same square footage compared to 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.
