OK, I've been watching this post with interest. I'm on the Chesapeake bay and have decided to stay in the water. I'm more concerned with wind than surge. Anyplace I haul is only gonna give me 5' - 6' of height above MHW.

My question is how to tie dock lines off to the pilings. The slip I'll be in has pilings with a decent height _except_ on the shore side. My fear is that the lines I have will hold the boat but the surge might put those pilings under water. What's a good knot to hold onto the pilings if the lines have an upward pull to them?
