Rough water conditions with lots of jerking on the ropeâ¦ a storm blowing through... 70-knot winds...itâs hard to relax when youâre wondering whether your boat is still secure in her slip or if the lines chafed through and broke.
Sleep Easy with Dock Lines You Can Trust
While no rope lasts forever, you can depend on these lines to hold fast through multiple seasons:
How to Choose Dock Lines
How thick? Your boat length will determine how thick a rope you need.
Note: You donât want to go thicker than you need. A thicker line is harder to handle, more difficult to coil, and takes up more space in the locker. Also, as you go thicker, you lose some of the stretch -- the longer and thinner the line, the greater the stretch.
Make sure that your line will fit comfortably on your cleats.
Note: If your line has an unnecessarily large diameter and you want to tie two lines to one cleat, you might not be able to tie a proper cleat hitch because one line already takes up too much of that cleat. In extreme cases, larger lines can actually unwind themselves on smaller cleats.
Ideally, you should have 6 lines at the dock to tie your boat up in her slip.
Note: Leave them tied to the slip so you donât need to recalculate every time you get back. The looped end goes on the boat cleats.
Keep another 6 lines on the vessel for âawayâ docking.
These will have the bitter end adjusted on board. The eye on the end can be easily passed around a cleat or piling by someone on the dock.
Spring lines should equal the length of the boat, plus a few feet.
Bow and stern lines should equal â the length of the boat.
