“It just lasts and lasts..!”  It constantly takes LHR Marine by surprise just how well Dynex Mooring, Marine and Towing Ropes last in so many different applications.  On board pelagic vessel Ingunn AK-150 there is a 20 metre length of 10mm Dynex rope that is used to move the water separator, depending on which tank the fish is being pumped into.  This rope is used on a doubled winch drum and runs to the separator, running from there to a block on the wheelhouse side and over to another winch drum on the forward side.  This is done to reduce the tension on the rope and to do away with any danger of it parting – and for just these reasons a length of steel wire was used before the Dynex rope replaced it.

The steel wire never did part, but instead had to be replaced every six months as it would rust. Now, after six years, the Dynex is practically as good as new.  However, it was replaced when a spring link - that the Dynex rope was spliced into on the separator - failed due to rust damage and was replaced last winter.  According to relief skipper and mate Róbert Axelsson, the rope would probably have stayed there if the spring link hadn’t failed.  As he said, “Dynex just lasts and lasts”.  For LHR Marine, this is another example of how well Dynex deserves its reputation as a SuperRope and performs fantastically even when unprotected against wind, weather and sea water from one year’s end to the next.
