  Tying up Your Watercraft  
  Line Handling

When aboard a boat ropes are no longer called ropes, they are called lines. At least three and preferably four lines should be carried aboard for docking.The diagram above shows four lines used. Although the stern line will keep the boat from moving forward too much, to be safe a fourth spring line running from the dock cleat forward could be used.
Use a Single or Double Bow Line depending on the type of dock to secure your bow.  
Use a Stern Line to secure the stern.  
Use at least one Spring Line to reduce fore-and-aft movement.  
Use Fender Ties to tie your fenders to your boat cleats. Use The St. George 2 in 1 to tie both your boat and fenders to the dock cleats.  
Use Dock Lines when tying up along side a dock or pier.  
Dock Cleats are used to secure your lines from your boat to the dock.
