Re: Dock lines length for a SM

Here is what I had onboard, which was 2 full set of docking line (a set being 2 bow line, 2 stern lines, only 1 breast line).
My normal set was 3/4
My secondary was 7/8
Also had snubber and long lines.
Since I saw several cleats break in Marina, I often double the lines (example, 2 lines from bow going to 2 different cleats).
Since lines are expensive, I protected them with firehose.
I highly recommend that, especially since firehose is pretty cheap;

Dear Amelian frieds.
I bought 300 ft of docking line for Ipanema. Has anyone thought out the best size to cut the docking lines for our boat?
