East Marine Asia stresses the importance
of having a good set of ropes for your boat; you
don’t want a line failing you if you are competing in
a local regatta; or heaven forbid, if you are caught
in a storm on the open seas. And even having your
vessel poorly moored in a marina can have disastrous
consequences if it’s not tied down properly.
