Re: Spring lines and cleats
Spring lines can be run forward and aft from the bow and stern cleats too.. they needn't be tied amidships....
Faster, this is true but the midships aft spring plays a unique and special role in essential proper docking maneuvers for which line there is no substitute. This subject was well worked over in a recent thread.
Certified...in several regards...
