Totally agree, and have been very frustrated and people thinking they know better. It is my boat and I will tie her up how I want. If other do not like it - tough.

I have had perfect alongsides wrecked by some *****hole grabbing the bow rope and ignoring where I want it, and then securing it so tight that the stern will never get close to the shore.

Dont bother with this these days, I lasso a single cleat with a rope from a misdhips cleat. This brings the boat alongside, and will keep her there with the engines running ahead whatever the wind, and allow me to leisurely secure my boat how I want her.

i also do the midship cleat thing, it works. if someone wants to grab a bow line, it will be sent to them, and if someone wants to grab a stern line, it will be sent to them.. but i find these big heavy bricks like to have midships line first, then the rest. they stay put best that way. and i have to check the lines i didnt secure. sometimes they aren't secure at all.....sometimes i use a long enough line midships to use for a stern spring line, and then tie off bow

Inside the house I understand.

How come they don't even want you to drive a car though?

Making decisions and going out and doing things are two different things.

My mileage may vary from yours though.

Mine too I'm afraid. We are all victims of our personal experiences.
