Can anyone please tell me how to choose a mooring rope. The problem is as follows:
A ship has to be moored at mid sea. The ship will be moored to 4 mooring buoys with one rope each. Each ropes will be tied to a separate bollard on the vessel.
I know the maximum environmental force that will be acting on the ship. Can anyone please tell me how to decide which wire rope will serve the purpose? Will my maximum environmental force = minimum breaking load of the wire rope?
Thanks a lot folks
