[360 VIDEO] How To Get Your Boat Away From the Dock Stern First In Wind Using Spring Lines | BoatUS


Hi! I’m Mark Corke here with BoatUS
Magazine. Today I’m going to show you how to use spring lines to get your boat
clear when the wind is pushing your boat against the dock. As you can see, I’m
assisting Jen from the bow of the boat. I’m holding the dock line as she slowly
motors forward, making the line taut, and causing the stern to swing clear. Once
we’re clear, she engages reverse, and I throw the dockline to the dock. Easy,
right? This can also be done with one of your own lines, but we recommend using a cleat in that case so you can quickly retrieve the line. Be sure to watch our
other 360 video on spring lines to see the technique used in different
situations. And don’t forget to check out our other videos, which you’ll find on
the BoatUS YouTube channel. Thanks for watching, and we’ll see you on the
water!
