Alex,
Thanks for the post hint.Am a admitted comp DUMBASS but currantly doing a 12 step program to fix that.

As i said this is something new to me as i live in the north country.
Across the pond are tiedowns the norm?I can understand the liability side of both the owner and the LANDOWNER...:D

See it as a good thing but wonder why it is not commom here.See pics of boats sitting on a cradle in gravel.....Makes me wonder what the boatowners are paying for and who is paying if the said boat goes OPSY....:)

My boat is in northern Florida and the yard ties it down when there is a threat of a hurricane. The boat's in a metal cradle and, of course, they charge extra when they tie it down. I haven't seen the tie downs but they must be pretty substantial based on the price. :)

Ties it down to what?
Alex has ground ties coming out of the blacktop.
What does your yard have?

Wonders how deep ties are over the pond?And here?

I don't know what the blacktop is, but ours are on the floor, embeded in the concrete, that is maybe half foot deep, or more..not a civil engineer.

I don't know how deep they are, but I guess a foot or so deep in the concrete. All yards have them here. and it's common practice, and good professionalism.
Blacktop is a oil based ground cover.
Sorry,Here as a truck driver just refer to all things as blacktop.Concrete/cement is even better.:D
Tiedowns for my PLane for down 5 feet with 1in rod.Frost thing here.How big are yours?

You say this is common?Common as in the hole Med?Your coast?How far?
Spent 2 weeks in scotland in the summer but do not recall seing this.Then again all GOOD SAILORS were in the wet:)
