2 Steps To Tying Your Boat To A Mooring Buoy (The Quick & Easy Way)
By: Joseph Simonds on December 4, 2019
When the wind is blowing, it can be a lot harder than it looks to tie your boat to a mooring buoy or ball…
Plus, when you pull up to the mooring buoy, the last thing you want to do is bring that slimy, grassy, barnacley rope on board and tie it to your boat…
In this video, we’ve got Capt. Mark “Hollywood” Johnson of FloridaKeysFunFishing.com to show us the quick and easy way to tie off to a mooring buoy, without bringing the dirty mooring buoy rope on board.
Watch how it’s done below.

When you’re tying off to a mooring buoy
- Slip your dock line through the loop on the mooring buoy rope
- Tie the other end to a second cleat on your boat.
This helps because:
- You don’t need to worry about tying knots with the mooring buoy rope that probably has barnacles and grass on it
- When it’s time to go, all you need to do is untie one knot on your boat and you’re good to go
