Dry storage: After the voyage, dry the rope to a dry state and then store it in a dry and ventilated place. Wet ropes are prone to rust and corrosion, so it is important to keep them dry.


Protects against mold and corrosion: Ropes are susceptible to mold and corrosion in marine environments. Using antifungal and antiseptic agents can effectively protect ropes and extend their life.


Avoid over-stretching: Ropes on boats may be subject to over-stretching during use, which can lead to rope deformation and wear. Therefore, when using ropes, avoid overstretching and use appropriate rope tension when needed.


Use rope pads: During use, ropes will come into contact with various hard objects, such as ship hulls, anchor chains, etc. To reduce wear and tear on your rope, you can use rope pads to protect your rope. Rope pads extend the life of your rope by distributing weight and pressure, reducing direct friction between the rope and other objects.


Maintenance of towing and slipping: Ropes on boats are often used for towing and slipping operations, so the maintenance of these components is also important. Regularly inspect and clean these parts to ensure they are functioning properly, and use appropriate lubricants to reduce wear and friction and increase the life of the rope.


Pay attention to storing ropes: When storing ropes on a boat, they need to be protected from direct sunlight and rain. Rope boxes or enclosed storage units can be used to protect ropes from sun and rain.


Training on the use and maintenance of ropes: Crew members need to receive training on the use and maintenance of ropes, and understand the characteristics and applicable scenarios of different types of ropes, as well as the correct use and maintenance methods. This will help reduce accidental wear and damage to the rope and ensure the safety of the rope.


In summary, regular inspection, cleaning, drying, corrosion protection and protection of ropes, as well as proper use and storage of ropes, are all important steps in maintaining ropes on board to ensure safety. Only through reasonable care and maintenance can we ensure that the ropes on the ship can play their due role at critical moments and ensure the safety of the ship.
