Mooring as illustrated below is designed to prevent damage to your boat (expensive for you) or damage to the docks and other boats (expensive for all the members including you)
It looks calm today but winds through the marina reach 55 knots +
Boats to 22’ shall use braided or laid nylon mooring lines a minimum of 3/8” diameter
Boats over 22’ shall use nylon line of at least ½”
Boats over 30’ shall use nylon line of at least 5/8”
Mooring lines less than 10’ require a steel or rubber snubber to reduce shock loading on your boat and dock
Mooring lines of 10’ or more (spring lines) are elastic and do not require snubbers
The Club has: nylon mooring line of 3/8” and ½”, 5/8”, steel snubbers, fenders and mooring cleats for the dock, all available through the office, bar, or Fleet Capt.
