Mooring winches
Mooring winches safeguard the shipboard end of mooring lines, attend to modification of the mooring line size and make up for modifications in draft and also tide. Basic needs for shipboard mooring winches are dealt within ISO Specifications 3730 and 7825.

Winches can be categorised by their control type (automatic or hand-operated tensioning), drive kind (vapor, hydraulic or electric), by the number of drums associated with each drive, by the sort of drums (split, concentrated) and by their brake kind and brake application (band, disc, mechanical screw, spring used).

- Automatic tension mooring winch, self-tension winch-- Winches created to heave-in immediately whenever the line stress falls below a certain pre-set worth. Likewise, they pay out if the line stress exceeds a pre-set worth. Making use of the self-tension winches is not recommended with the exception of mooring deployed at 90 ° to the ship axis.

- Handbook stress mooring winch-- Manual winch constantly requires an individual to take care of the controls for heaving or providing.

- Non-split drum mooring winch-- The concentrated drum winches are generally found on smaller ships. It is frequently tough to spool as well as store the cord on such a drum sufficiently; when cords are handled directly off the drum, the final turns of the external layer when under tension often tend to bite into the reduced layer. This might lead to feasible cord damage as well as problems when releasing the line. To reduce this issue, the winch with non-split drum must be placed at a sufficient range from the fairlead to make sure that the cable can be effectively spooled.

- Split drum mooring winch-- A winch with a drum split by a notched flange into a stress section and also a line storage space area.
