Mooring question?

I have recently visited Dartmouth and seen the boats moored up with buckets tied to the props. What is the reason for this as most of the boats had them on?Click image for larger version

I think it's to stop the skegs and props damaging the other boats.

Is that the only reason because even boats that weren't near others had buckets on

Whisper is right, but they can also be used to slow down fouling / weeding up on the lower part of the engine

It's a DHNA bylaw,"All propellers on exposed outboards must be covered by a bucket or basket". Guess it's to stop damage to any WAFI's pride & joy when it drifts into a moored craft with a real engine!

Not sure what real benefit it brings compared to the damage caused when you can cast off a whole passenger ferry & let that drift down the river!

Someone could always pull up and moor nearby later, couldn't they?

No not in some of the places that boats had buckets on. Some had them on and boats couldn't fit behind them. It just seemed strange that they were only there for that but as mentioned it must be something in local legislations

Is it not just somewhere to keep your spare bucket
