Clear Hawse Pendants A clear hawse pendant is a wire rope pendant, 5 to 15 fathoms long, with a thimble at one end and a pelican hook attached to a length of open-link chain fitted in a thimble at the other end. This pendant is used to clear a hawse fouled by the anchor chain. See figure 4-9.

A dip rope is used when mooring or clearing a hawse. Chafing Chain or Pendant A short length of chain and/or a wire rope pendant is inserted between the anchor and the anchor buoy line. This prevents the anchor buoy line from chafing on the anchor  and  parting.
