The Hazelett Conservation Elastic Mooring System is an advanced alternative to traditional ball and chain moorings. Our elastic mooring system reduces point loads on deck hardware, eliminates the jerking motion when chain becomes taut, and keeps the vessels pointed straight into the wind. It additionally acts as a conservation mooring to protect sensitive marine ecosystems. A typical chain mooring system usually has at least a 3: to 1: scope. When boats swing with wind and tidal changes, the chain on the seabed rakes the bottom, killing eelgrass. Shellfish and finfish need eelgrass to spawn and have cover for their young to hide in. A Hazelett mooring elastic system connected to a Helix screw anchor floats above the seabed with a minimal footprint. Many New England harbors are requiring conservation moorings and Hazelett Marine is involved in several eelgrass restoration projects. Hazelett Marine is the largest manufacturer of elastic mooring systems in the U.S.A. and thousands have been sold worldwide.’
