Securing Dock Line
OK -- another dumb question from a greenhorn.
Every boat I have been out on in the past has already had their dock lines secured to the pilings and dock prior to departure and return, and I have not given much thought to securing my own boat until today, when my boat is going for a dip for the first time.
When the boat was hulled last year all the dock lines were pulled by the marina staff and I stored them in my garage all winter. Now I need to go back down there today and get stuff ready for the boat to come back to the slip.
What is the best way to secure the dock lines to the pilings? What knots do use and are there any other considerations.
