Anchoring and deciding to spend a few hours in a roadstead, night or day, happens frequently on a boat, especially when you are on vacation and move frequently from one point to another. Mooringin the roadstead, however, assumes that the appropriate tools and accessories for this situation are on board the boat. For example, a tender with which to reach land for any eventuality, or a rope to make mooring from land. We found in Boatique. co.uk the accessories you need to have on board to moor in the roadstead, here they are.
The most useful accessories on board when mooring at roadstead:
It can happen, especially in summer and in very crowded coves, to cross the chain of one’s anchor with that of another boat. In these cases, a key help in solving the problem is the Anchor Save Hook. Without having to dive in love water and safely you can release the anchor chain in a few moments!
Who said a tender has to be a small dinghy? Have you ever thought of using a rigid boat, perhaps transparent, as a tender? With VergaPlast’s 220T model you can explore even the seabed under the boat because it is totally transparent! In addition to the supplied oars, then, it can be equipped with an electric motor. Weight: 29 kg, length: 2.20 m, width: 1.20 m.
Stowing and keeping a long, strong line ready for use is always useful on a boat, especially when mooring in a roadstead. This one we offer is available in three different lengths: 60 m (roller ø 42 cm) 80 m (roller ø 49 cm) 100 m (roller ø 54 cm). The lines are 35 mm wide and 2.5 mm thick. In addition to being useful for the eventual stern anchor, it can be used in an emergency or as a tow line. But the main use in the roadstead is for mooring lines ashore.
The SUP has become such a popular accessory that there are now very few boats that do not still have it on board. In addition to being lightweight and stable, an inflatable SUP allows the whole family to have fun, and can also be used for boat-to-shore travel instead of a tender.
