A guide to mooring your boat securely
Please study the illustrations and read the follow guidelines on how to moor your boat securely.
A minimum of four lines (ropes) will keep your boat secure to the dock in all weather conditions.
1. Bow Line
2. Stern Line
3. Bow Spring Line
4. Stern Spring Line
The bow and stern lines (No. 1 & 2) hold the boat up against the dock.
The spring lines (No. 3 & 4) keep the boat from drifting forwards or backwards thus avoiding collisions with boats moored in front or behind. Well adjusted spring lines are very important especially during periods of high winds.
Bristol Harbour levels regularly fall (and occasionally rise) about 0.5 metres. The bow and stern lines (No. 1 & 2) will require sufficient slack to accommodate this change in water level. Serious hull and deck damage can occure if boats are left hanging from their mooring lines. The long spring lines require less slack.
If you would like any further help on this issue please don't hesitate to give me a call and we can arrange to meet at the dock to talk it through.
