If you are tying up between two piers, these dock snubbers are the BOMB. Because they flex, you can tie everything tight on all four corners—and the boat will never touch either dock. But because they flex, they won't rip out your boat cleats or the dock cleats even when severely overloaded surfing boats decide to cruise 15' off your dock(really?why?) Greatest thing I've ever tried.

Thanks for all the help guys! We don't have anyone to show us the ropes (no pun intended), so we rely heavily on this site to figure out what we are doing.

jdhart73, we'll be there 6/29 - 7/5.

I prefer the 20-25' lines. They make life much easier when party rafting and tossing to dock hands. Not to mention if dock cleats are not perfectly easy. 10' shoestrings are a waste IMO.
3/8 double braided would be best.
Don't know your location or route but Cabelas or Bass Pro in KC or stop at the original Bass Pro in Springfield They should have a better selection than your 10' marina.

As mentioned, 6 is ideal. 4 at the corners for standard side to side movement and two for spring lines to hold steady front to back.
(I just helped a guy pump his boat out at our marina. He had slipped over night, tied 4 corners great but wind pushed the boat back far enough the stern suck out. Roof run off from a heavy rain filled his boat until gunwale was only 2 inches above water.)

I had a mooring cover made before a big trip to Havasu. It was probably the best $500 I ever spent. Keeps the boat clean while trailering in the rain and dirty dew/bugs out of the boat when left on the water overnight. (plus would have prevented the near sinking in my above example)

You will love Table Rock compared to our dirty reservoirs. Mung line was less in a week at TRL than an afternoon at Perry.

I'm in Derby. We like to go to Winfield for quick afternoon trips. Tablerock is nice and so is Beaver Lake.

Big thanks everyone. She's rocking gently and securely in a big covered slip. Couldn't have done it without you.
