Keeping your boat securely moored can make it easier to board and help prevent accidents from occurring. Bungee cords are a simple way to tether your boat to the docks. Look for bungee cord dock lines with built-in hooks or loops for fast attachment. Double- and triple-braided marine rope provides increased strength, and UV-resistant marine rope is designed to withstand damage caused by long hours of exposure to the sun. Versatile cable ties can be used for a wide range of situations aboard your boat, and hook-and-loop straps can help make sure that your boating safety equipment is within easy reach. Keep a canvas snap kit on board to help you quickly replace snaps, studs and eyelets on boat covers and other accessories, and if you have a large amount of cargo on board, load straps are a great way to keep everything securely positioned to minimize shifting during transport.
Brightly colored dock lines are always easier to find, even in low-light conditions. Bright yellow and orange lines provide high visibility and can be easily pointed out to less experienced sailors, while darker hues can be used to create a color-coding system to clearly mark ropes that are used for designated tasks.
