CHANCE® helical boat moorings are a superior method of permanent anchoring of vessels. This method is preferred by insurance companies and harbormasters due to increased holding capacity and tighter scoping.
Instead of dead weight – which is notoriously unreliable in storms – helical screw anchors are screwed into the sea bottom to a prescribed depth to resist a specific load. This affords better protection in storms and more reliable, predictable results. More boats can be accommodated in the harbor by reducing the scoping or amount of space each vessel requires.
Installations can be conducted by divers on a workboat with hydraulic rotary installation equipment.
The same helical mooring anchors are used in aquaculture fields to secure fish cages to the ocean bottom.
