Fairleads

Fairleads

The ones we list in this section are for mooring lines etc. Fairleads for running rigging are listed in here

  • Straight Fairleads Straight Fairleads

    Used amidships, and also at the stern of craft with a transom. You may need a bit of keelband to protect the deck edge.

  • Straight Lipped Fairleads Straight Lipped Fairleads

    Very neat, but be sure that the fasteners are far enough inboard to be strong.

  • Handed Fairleads Handed Fairleads

    Used at the bow, and the stern of double enders. You can have a half pair, but please let us know which one you need.

  • Handed Lipped Fairleads Handed Lipped Fairleads

    Not sure I'm entirely convinced by lipped fairleads, since the fasteners are inevitably close to the edge of the rail, and so may not be very strong. If that is a problem, you may be better off to fit the fairleads inboard, and then a strip of keelband to protect the deck edge

  • Lockover Lipped Fairleads Lockover Lipped Fairleads

    More secure than the handed lipped fairleads

  • Bulwark Fairleads Bulwark Fairleads

    The good news is that stray lines will never catch in these. The bad news is that all lines have to be fed through them. The nominal size is the size of the opening.

  • Sunken Fairleads Sunken Fairleads

    If the rail is not deep enough for bulwark fairleads, these could be an answer. They are also less likely to catch stray sheets than conventional fairleads, and so are suitable for placing amidships for springs.

  • Closed Fairleads Closed Fairleads

    The good news is that stray lines will never catch in these. The bad news is that all lines have to be fed through them.
