Boating Tips & Tutorials: Storing Your Dock Lines on the Lifeline
Boat 7 years ago 1,912 views
After leaving the dock, you'll need to store your dock lines in an accessible place. One way to do this is by coiling your dock lines and tying them to the lifeline. Captain Dave shows us how. Coil your line, making even loops as you go. Spin the line as you coil to ensure you take the memory or hockles out of the loops. Create even loops until you have about one and a half coils length of line left. Wrap this line one and a half times around the coil and pull the line through the top of your coil. Use a slip hitch to attach the coil to your lifeline. As long as there is pressure pulling down on the coil, your line is secure!
