Marine Berthing 2nd Question

Whilst berthed are there any extra security measures that can be taken ?
Is there a way of locking the boat to the pontoon ?

You can always use chain/cable through an a-frame or s/s fitting to a pontoon cleat.

I asked similar question at Port Solent, however the Rib in a Marina where you have to use the lock to get out so the Rib is relatively safe, however when I mentioned about chaining it to the pontoon they said they'd rather I didn't cos if they need to move my Rib in an emergency they would not be able to.

Beware. We did this and along came a nasty blow and we bent the A-frame. It was probably our fault as we should have moved the RIB to a quieter berth in the marina.

We have not used the chaining-up method since then.

Do the insurance companies insist on using any securing method.

No. But mine did ask which marina it was in and clearly knew that there was a 24hr presence. (Mine is in there for extended periods and has never had any problems)

Hi

Our insurance were happy for it to be in a named marina, however they did insist on a security device being fitted to the outboard to make sure it could not be removed. We fitted a lockable bolt thro the transom and this kept them happy - anyone who really wants to take it tho would still be able to (with a bit of time and effort) but at least the insurance would pay out!

I would ensure that i got a letter from the broker telling you exactly what requirements the ins company has and then take their advice on how you should effect this
