Re: Spring lines and cleats
I use the bow and stern cleats for spring lines.
For single handed docking, I've got some lines rigged in the slip that will "catch" the boat before it runs into the dock and I come in nice and slow.
I've also got a line I can run to one of the stanchions and use that to grab a dock cleat. But you can't come in hot with that.
