Environmentally Friendly Elastic Moorings
The StormSoft™ Elastic Mooring System, connected to an adequate anchor, floats above the seabed to reduce or eliminate raking of the seabed, improving restoration of environmentally sensitive eelgrass by minimizing the typical 3-to-1 bottom-raking footprint.
Many harbors incorporating conservation moorings and eelgrass restoration projects specify elastic moorings for ecological reasons alone.
