I have always been on a dock
cleat with a dock
that was permanent and also floating docks.
This will be the first time I will be on a dock with riser bars and rings.
I noticed most people had made an eye splice and kind of pulled it through itself to lock it on to the ring and wrapped the other end around the cleat on th boat
. The when they go out, they just throw the line. Some has an eyesplice with a spring hook on it.
I will always want to just throw the lines from the boat
with the fixed end on the riser ring - some way or another. I will be using 5/8" 3 strand twisted nylon. I have had good results with making eye splices on both ends and went through several hurricanes that way and never suffered any hull
damage as a result.
Do any of you use riser rods and rings and if so, how do you tie your boat up?
