No mistake- it's transparent rope. Or is it that the boat is NOT a Falcon?

Is it,

I want to leave the boat on the pontoon not have some Charlie holding the spring all night. I mean he looks like he wants to get the duty frees back.

Serious point mode:-

Mind the berth looks a bit small to me. The tubes will be rubbing the underneath of the berth argh!

Agree on securing the boat loose, another tip try and get berth that the prevailing wind blows the boat off the pontoon.

Manos, you really are an arse at times.

That is a photo of the boat at the Southampton Boat Show, and when it was taken the boat had only just arrived at the show, and if you look carefully the guy is in the process of berthing it.

As for the berth being to small, you don't actually get a choice at a show, you pays your money and accept what your given!

Hi folks

Have kept my RIB aflote for 12 months now and have tried many methods.

Now i leave the rope quite loose so that if the wind is in the right direction it floats away from the pontoon, and when against the mooring does not rub in the same spot all the time.

I dont like springs as to work they nees to be quite tight and this means they will rub along the top of the tubes. I use one sterm line which goes over the lower part of the A frame and hence clear of the tubes and two bow lines from the D ring and out to two cleats in a wide Y.

I also tie the fenders to the pontoon and not the RIB as they tend to go uder the pontoon leaving the tops of the tubes rubbing.

The main protection I use are three home made BIG fender sheets.
These are 6 foot by 3 foot and made from a heavy PVC almost like a tender is made from. Inside these are fitted two foam sleeping mats and attached with straps to the lifeline D's. Will have a look if I have any pics showing them fitted tonight but belive they are wonderful as the tubes never come in contact with the fenders let alone the pontoon.

Regards Gary
