Tug & Salvage Lines

Tug lines are one of the most demanding applications in the commercial marine industry due to the high loads and abrasion these ropes experience on each job. Ravenox has supplied quality products to tugs all over the world for ship assist, towing, and escort jobs, for many years. Technologically advanced products such as Plasma® 12x12 offer our customers the following benefits:

  • Lighter and easier to handle
  • Requires fewer crew members
  • Faster tie ups and stand downs
  • Safer - reduces strain and back injuries
  • No fish hooks
  • Reduced costs
  • No maintenance
  • Proven track record in the industry for over 20 years
  • Works well on winches

Ravenox provides and recommends the use of pendants which are a very popular method for extending the life of tug assist and working lines. Pendants are a shorter length of rope attached to the mainline by either reeving or cow-hitching the lines together. The pendant is on the working end of the main tug hawser and gets most of the abrasion and damage. Thus, the shorter pendant (usually 50-ft to 100-ft in length) can then be replaced, if and when necessary, at a less expensive cost than replacing the 450-ft mainline.
