May 21, 2021 | posted by Jon Mitchell
This week one of our many splicing projects has been finishing the 44mm diameter Mooring Lines for RRS Sir David Attenborough, formerly known as ‘Boaty McBoatface’ . The research vessel owned by the Natural Environment Research Council is operated by the British Antarctic Survey for research and logistic support.
The 190m of Superline HS is a 100% Polyester high strength, low elongation “jacketed” rope that is a lightweight alternative to steel wire.
