Different ways of mooring?

As you know I've got an SR4, its going to be moored in the harbour.
Its pretty much the same as any other RIB, its got a bow eye and two U-bolts on the transom.
Whats the best way to tie it up, is they anything designed for RIBs which I can bolt to the transom?
For the bow I'm just going to use a painter and carabiner. Was thinking of doing the same for the stern too?

Any thoughts?

Hi chewy are you keeping it at staithes or whitby,either way i dont think you will have any problems with just the front eye ,though for piece of mind you could run a bridle from the transom then go through the front eye too .

It'll be in Staithes Mart. I need it moored off the stern too as its on a line of moorings.

If using a carabiner, suggest you use a screwgate crab rather than just rely on the spring to keep it closed

Lol my old boat has ended up in a few different things photos, painting etc.
Mines moored on the new small boat moorings so I'm out of line of the beck when it does come down after heavy rain, on the downside my boat is the first to get hit by waves.

A nice painting of my old boat and how it really looked lol.

Just been having a think. I could get some cleats and use U-bolts to mount them to the stainless transom supports then use PVC pipe over the transom to prevent chafe.

Sort of what I do - caribiners to bow eye & stern ski eyes - then the lead lines for the mooring come in to the boat & onto cleats inside the transome, then round the Aframe !

In the bow they go to a second eye on the inside of the bow - more chances if the main caribiners let go .Hopefully both ends wont let go !

The engine mounts should be a pretty solid place too - I have handy holes in the mount I could use.

I'm lucky I'm very sheltered on my mooring - quite a few RIBS in the harbour are on swinging moorings on just the bow D ring & bow lines.

I've currently for 12mm nylon covered in slime with two smaller lines coming off. The smaller lines take the strain and if they fail I have the main 12mm tied on too.
