The weather is good. A rope holds the boat to the quay. The owner is gone longer than planned. The wind picks up and everything changes…
“Hello? Sir… your boat has broken a docking line. It’s nothing serious but the swimming ladder has been twisted and there’s a chip in the gel-coat on the hull…” The Harbour Master’s Office will replace the faulty rope (at the owner’s expense), but there may be damage to neighbouring boats, the boat itself or port facilities.
This kind of very frequent situation can be prevented! Each year, a natural event, more damaging than those encountered in the past occurs and brings damage in its wake! A properly functioning anchorage of the correct size is the best and least costly guarantee. This section will help pleasure boaters to prepare a hassle-free mooring.
