Tips For Your Mooring Lines & Requirements During A Storm

Tips For Your Mooring Lines & Requirements During A Storm

by Veronica Jeans, Ecommerce Queen July 28, 2020

What size should your boat lines be during a storm?

  1. Primary Mooring Lines – Check size, condition, and length.
  2. Spring Lines – Check size, condition, and length.
  3. Check vessel cleat size to be sure primary/spring lines will fit on one cleat.
  4. Chafe gear – use clear vinyl, water hose, or leather (punch a hole at each end of the hose to secure it to the line with a smaller line to avoid sliding).
