Which size should I need to mooring or anchoring my boat?
We have received many requests asking about the right line size for mooring and anchoring boats.
The right rope size depends on a number of factors: strong winds, waves, boat length, tides and quality of the rope.
The following information is intended as a recommendation/guide only, based on the mooring line and anchor snubber standards of dbropes (made with 100% three-strand nylon ropes made in USA).
Boats Length Up: 24 ft 1/2" diameter.
Boats Length Up: 29 ft 5/8" diameter.
Boats Length Up: 40 ft 3/4" diameter.
Boats Length Up: 55 ft 1" diameter.
The length should be equal to 2 1/2 times the freeboard (the height of a ship's side between the waterline and the deck).
