Chris handles all the member requests, so he’s your person to go to for help!

Marina Tips


How to Tie Up Your Boat at the Dock: A Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Approach the Dock Slowly and Safely

  • Approach the dock at a slow speed, ensuring you have good control of the boat.
  • Aim to come in at a shallow angle (around 20 degrees) and shift to neutral as you get close.

Step 2: Prepare Your Dock Lines and Fenders

  • Have your dock lines ready and fenders in place to protect both your boat and the dock from damage.

Step 3: Secure the Bow Line

  • Once close enough, step onto the dock (or have a crew member do so) and secure the bow line to a dock cleat.
  • Wrap the line around the cleat in a figure-eight pattern and finish with a locking hitch to ensure it stays secure.

Step 4: Attach the Stern Line

  • Next, secure the stern line in a similar fashion, wrapping it around a cleat at the back of the dock.
  • Ensure both the bow and stern lines are taut but not overly tight, allowing some flexibility for tide and boat movement.

Step 5: Adjust and Secure Spring Lines

  • Attach spring lines to prevent the boat from moving forward and backward along the dock.
  • Secure a line from the boat’s stern to a cleat further forward on the dock, and another from the bow to a cleat further back on the dock.



Be Aware!

Drive Slowly inside the Marina



Please drive slowly inside the marina. Excessive speed can create waves that may disrupt other boats and the office.

Do not fish on the docks!


Dear members, please refrain from fishing on the docks because the floor is slippery, and there is a risk of falling into the water or injuring yourself.



If you have any questions, send an email to or please
call us at (705) 456-6212 or our toll-free number 844-910-BOAT (2628)

We’re excited to see you at Cooks Bay Marina!
