Snapping

Went down and checked it out. 4ft white caps inside the marina!! Almost had to crawl on the docks to get to the boat. NASTY stuff!! Damn North Winds. They are the kiss of death. Anyway I looked at the scuff mark, only on the surface. Definately compoundable. WHEW!!!!! Replaced the docklines and added a few extra bumbers. The dockmaster contributed the failure to tying to the dock to closely. Not enough slack in the lines to compensate for the fluctuation of the waves. A lesson learned, luckily not a t a great expense.

Hawkeye You'll want to check those lines too. They should not snap.

bcasey Mike,
Casualties are very unfair this early in the season. Looks can be deceiving, better check it out good while your still at the dock.
Hope all's OK!

When good times go bad

Tied the boat up Saturday. Get a call from the Marina today. One of the docklines snapped and the boat swung and hit the dock! According to the marina .... no damage but my friend saw that there is an 18 inch scuff with some wood splinters on the the side.

Think this will be just a compound job?
