To always prepare your boat for a storm when you are not in the boat.
That's how a good old sailor's rule sounds..
Tampons used for mooring shall have high tensile strength and be resistant to abrasion, jerking and sunlight.
Tampers should be sufficiently coarse for the weight of the boat.
Short-fiber reinforced staple rope or so-called. "wool" has a low breaking limit and should not be used for permanent mooring.
If the tampon is damaged, it should be replaced immediately. Permanent moorings made of polyester and polyamide silk goods must be replaced at least every 4 years, regardless of whether they look worn or not. Lower grades must be changed annually because of their rapid aging.
All devices (jetty, berth or other) to which the mooring is to be attached must be checked so that bollards, rings and the like are firmly secured and hold for the boat to be moored.
The stern of the boat must be moored with the tampers in a cross. It gives the smallest movement sideways.
Mooring at floating docks, pontoons and other mobile devices can cause severe jerks in the moorings at sea and swell. This places particularly high demands on suspension.
Suspension / jerk equalizers should always be used for permanent mooring.
Wear protection on the tampers should be used eg. kaus, protective clothing.
The tampers must always be rough enough for the weight of the boat.
At the places that have a pole, the mooring stump must have throttle eye.
