Great idea . My wife really likes it since she is normally the one trying to grab a dock line and get it tied off before smashing her fingers.I just put some of those rubber snubbers on my dock lines and really like them.

I rely on the liberal use of fenders:

Not long ago, a guy stopped by my boat and muttered to his friend "looks like training wheels" then continued on to his boat. He fired up the Donzi and zoom zoom . . . .

I think there are only three boats on my dock that are bow first into their slips, Boomarang, a sailboat and another trawler. All the rest are cruisers and sportfishing boats with twins. Occasionally, one will return with an engine out and proceed to entertain everyone on the dock by trying to back into their slip. One evening while socializing with my dock mates, I quietly mentioned that in a situation like that, sometimes it might be easier to put the pointy end in first. Totally new concept!

I do kind of like the "training wheels" thing though.

Mark,

It looks like you just might be able to squeeze one more green one in there . . . .

Imron. The picture was taken this Spring. The paint/finish was about 28 months old.

Truly, isn't it a "mooring bra"?
