<SPAN id=_ctl1_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater__ctl1_lblFullMessage>Posted in the Piers and Bridges Section too but not much traffic there so thought I'd try here too!

After my anchoring fiasco at the Destin Bridge a couple of weeks ago I have decided my best bet is to tie off to the bridge down stream of the current when it is strong like I have seen others doing.

My question is if you are going to tie off to the front of your boat how much rope is need to wrap around the bridge pylon and then clasp back to itself and keep the boat a safe distance from the bridge? West Marine has pre-spliced rope 25% off right now so I want to make sure I purchase the right size. I'm guessing I need a minimum of 25' but might need to buy the 50 footer and cut down to the right size.

flyliner (3/30/2010)My 2 cents, buy the 50 tie one end to your cleat, go around the piling, tie tag to boat, time to leave, uncleat and pull tag back.
I like your way of thinking!
