SSR-1200-8 is a non-rotational rope with an excellent coefficient of friction for working off H-bitts for tug assist lines on conventional tugs or tractor tugs without winch drums. To minimize connection weight to the assisted ship, many operators use AmSteel®-Blue connection pendants for their lightweight and high wear resistance.
