Re: What Size Dock Lines do I Need ?

Thank you Stumble until you mentioned enough force to stretch I would have said big is good bigger is better, I was wrong. However the stretch is what limits damage to the boat. Now I must do more research and I understand mooring with multiple lines that come under stress as the seas become more insistent.
