The Superyacht rigging specialists rigged the 66m Dubois, Ahimsa (ex. Aglaia) came to Marlow to help solve issues of counteracting forces and frequent cyclic bending from the captive winches which was creating cover slip in the existing ropes.
The excess and baggy cover resulted in damage to the ropes as well as hampering the smooth running of the winches. In addition, very high loads combined with a 3:1 factor of safety caused issues with rope diameter limitations from winches and deck gear.
Our Technical Sales and Engineering Teams worked closely with the riggers to specify and manufacture a rope that solved these issues within the timescales resulting in custom made ropes that met the tough application demands and the high expectations of the owner.
