Mooring lines for barges, or Hawsers, come in many flavors. Some ropes such as Plasma & Spectra offer very light weight and low stretch performance characteristics. Where elongation is required for your Hawser, combination ropes such as Maxi-Flex, Maxi-Gold, Super-Flex and Maxima offer elongation properties and abrasion resistance needs for barge mooring. When a floating rope is required, Maxima and Plasma ropes offer light weight performance and much less water absorption. Bilco Group stocks more than 400 Hawsers ranging from 4” circ. to 12” circ., with breaking strengths from 40,000 lbs to over 400,000 lbs in 3, 8, and 12 strand. We also cut to length and supply custom length spliced units with many chafe guard options, including our exclusive WEB-TEC chafe guard.
