MISSION Lines


LINE SLECTION

Nice dock lines make a difference. Having the right sizes on hand will keep you sane while tying up your boat. Ideally, you will have at least two bow/stern lines and two spring lines on board. Use the information and chart below to determine what you need. 

 

Diameter

The cleats on your boat are designed to work with appropriately sized lines. Lines that are too big for your cleats can cause problems.

 

Length

Choose lengths that give you maximum flexibility without creati ng unnecessary or cumbersome extra line.

 

Bow / Stern Lines       

Firmly secure and hold the boat in place at the dock. They attach at both the bow and stern of the boat the adjacent dock cleats. 

 

Spring Lines      

Keep the boat parallel with the dock. They attach diagonally from a cleat at the boat’s center to dock cleats located near both ends (bow/stern) of the boat. 

How-to: Tie a Clove Hitch

Wrap the line once around the rail or post you’re tying it to, starting from the front and working over the top.


Pass the line over itself.
