The Towing Bridle constructed of Samson Quantum-X™, leads through the centerline chock on the disabled ship and attaches to multiple deck fittings. Engineered for improved snag resistance
and high coefficient of friction, Quantum-X offers enhanced grip on bitts and chocks. Chafe protection provides
increased security on key contact points.
The Hawser bushing is sized to fit through most chocks and provides a secure, non-abrasive connection between the bridle to the towing hawser. Made of marine-grade aluminum, it is easy to handle
and incorporates optimized line bend ratios. The bushing allows the bridle legs to share towing loads equally, even when rigged asymmetrically.
The Towing Hawser constructed of AmSteel®-Blue combines the extreme strength with ease of handling and positive buoyancy. Tubular line floats are added to ensure the composite thimble remains readily recoverable at the water’s surface
The retrieving line incorporates a pilot anchor to stream the hawser to windward when deployed from the disabled ship. This allows the rescue vessel to stand off while retrieving the tow system
rather than attempting close maneuvers. Additional floats and a strobing beacon make it visible in darkness or periods of low visibility.
