Wow, bad dockline setup....

1972 Irwin 25'6 Sloop sailboat for sale in Ohio

This boat (if the link no longer works), is tied with 2 stern lines, 2 bow lines, and the bow is against the dock. The boat is for sale.

Is it just me or does it not lend itself well to selling the boat?

One fender?

The main halyard is still attached and the head of the main is exposed to UV.

Well, it is at Battery Park Marina. The description says that it comes with EVERYTHING, including dents in the bow.

I would have adjusted the dock lines and NOT taken a photo of it almost sitting on the dock. That tells me the owner thinks that is normal.

The bow line doesn't go thru the chocks either. I bet they just pulled into a slip to take some pictures.

I so cringe when I see otherwise great boats like this. Yes you HOPE it was only pulled into a slip like this for pictures, but the view you get tells a less hopeful story.

My gosh I didn't sleep at night when I first put my boat in the slip... 4 lines, 2 spring lines, and there was a nail sticking up on the dock at the bow... I had to go with a hammer to hammer it down the very next day.

My "imagination" got the best of me... this tiny 6d nail turned into a 20d SPIKE pointed at my bow! I laughed so hard when I went to "pound" it in... it broke in half with no swing at all (the boat would have crushed it, and it would have broken)...

Of course the boat couldn't reach it. But when I see pictures like this I cringe.

Glad to see it isn't just me.

Also, how many of you, passing this boat, would at least try to tighten the lines to move the bow back? I know, "touching someone else's boat."

Poor guy, he's just trying to sell his boat and I am being bad. Sir/maam if you read this, please, please, we really just wanna help.

Agree with Barquito. In one of the other photos you can see a spring line. Bad choice of photos, though. Too bad, it's a pretty little boat.

We had this happen this weekend. Guy has a little plastic (literally) catamaran tied up, not in a slip, but he rigged something up and uses a block to pull it to the side of the dock. Flimsy sails on a half-a$$ed furling system.

This weekend we had strong winds that unfurled one of the sails so that it started flapping annoyingly. No one would have been able to sleep and the sail might have been torn if left flapping. So we and another couple pulled the boat over, boarded it, lowered the sail and tied it to the deck.

Sunday morning I let the marina manager know, just in case the guy wondered who touched his boat, I was told that he owns one of the townhouses (20 feet from the boat). I wondered why he just didn't take the darn sails inside the house!

Since we didn't know this guy, in hindsight we thought we should have taken a short iPhone video of how the wind was blowing it and the sound it made before we secured the sail, just in case.

Any one of our slip neighbors who we know would do it for any one of us. And they have. It's accepted that we watch each others' lines when one isn't down for the weekend or whatever.

Relax, everyone has their priority. It is just because the owner chooses not to do the "right" way does not mean he is below you. Some people do not care much their possession. Unless his boat poses immediately danger to others, it is all good.

If you are bothered by this, you will not last long. Relax, chill and don't worry about the thing that you can't control. Be happy.

Jack

I understand the main exposed to UV is a big no-no.
But the main halyard still attached, is this a bad thing? I do it all the time(sail fully covered)
