Titan Knots – Mooring Hitch (aka Tugboat Hitch)

The Mooring Hitch (aka Tugboat Hitch or Lighterman’s Hitch) is a knot ideal for heavy towing, or making fast to a post, bollard, or winch. It is easy to release, even under great load.

 

 

Tying the Mooring Hitch

To tie the Mooring hitch, follow these simple instructions…
  1. Take a single turn or a round turn around the post.
  2. Pass a bight under the standing part, then drop the bight over the top of the post.
  3. Next, make a bight in the rope on the other side of the standing part and drop it over the post. NOTE: In each placement of a bight over the post, the end’s side of the bight should lead to the side away from the standing part – this will make casting off easier.
  4. Continue this repetition as necessary until secure (usually three bights).
  5. Finish by half-hitching a bight around the standing part or a round turn about the post.

IMPORTANT – With heavy loads, it is important to have made enough bights and turns to reduce force on the final turns or a hitch–otherwise, it will be difficult to untie (a hitch) or may slip.
