We have another quick tip on how to store the excess line that remains after tying up to the dock! The sign of any well seasoned crew is a boat that's tied up with professional linework. It's this attention to detail that sets your boat apart and keeps everything looking tidy and neat.

Start by coiling the excess line in long loops. Once you've got the line gathered in your hand, drape it across the railing of your boat without letting go. Take the line that's away from the boat and pull it through the center loop. Finally, take that line and pull over and down, securing the loop. You can easily reverse this process to quickly untie the line.

Remember that practices makes perfect, so grab the family for a little knot practice so your ready when the time comes. Until next time, Shurhold is here to help keep your boat Clean-N-Simple!
