dvandenburgh - November 23, 2008 Ariel, our Cape Dory 36, at rest in her slip in St. Joseph, Michigan. Original Thumbnail Comments Dock lines Permalink Submitted by dvandenburgh on Sun, 11/23/2008 - 13:02. You noticed! She was tied up for a forecasted storm - we doubled the lines - because our marina experiences a lot of surge when the wind is strong from off the lake. Her 20,000 pounds gets surging fore and aft and she stretches and breaks docklines. Lines Permalink Submitted by dweller on Sun, 11/23/2008 - 11:43. With the number of dock lines, it looks like you're in a hurricane hole???
