Mooring the Boats

Tie-off boat securely but simply to enable easy release.
Don’t let ropes get wet during use as they are more likely to freeze.  Don’t use a knot that will be difficult to release when rope is frozen.

Step 1.  Make the first loop around the cleat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2.  Make figure 8 around the cleat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3.  Cinch the knot by inserting free end under last loop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4.  Coil end of rope to keep free end out of the way of foot traffic on the dock.
