How to Tie Up Your Boat

When renting boat dockage from a boat slip rental company in Annapolis, MD, you can benefit from learning the best ways to secure your vessel in the boat slip. Watch this video to learn one method of tying up your boat.

Properly securing your vessel to the boat slip’s cleat will help you to untie your boat and head out onto the water without difficulties. The cleat has two horns. When bringing your boat in, you want to wrap the rope under and around the far horn, and then all the way around the bottom of the cleat. Next, cross the horn across the cleat, and then bring it around the far horn a second time. Finally, give the rope a twist and then hook the loop around the near horn.
