Mooring in roadsteads is very common in summer, especially when going on vacation and wandering around creeks and coves without stopping in port perhaps for days. Some accessories cannot be missed if you choose to stay at roadstead with your boat. At
we found the accessories to have on board for mooring in the roadstead.

The most useful accessories on board when mooring at roadstead:

It can happen, especially in summer and in very crowded coves, to cross the chain of one’s anchor with that of another boat. In these cases, a key help in solving the problem is the Anchor Save Hook. Without having to dive in love water and safely you can release the anchor chain in a few moments!

Roadstead Accessories: Tender

Who said a tender has to be a small dinghy? Have you ever thought of using a rigid boat, perhaps transparent, as a tender? With VergaPlast’s 220T model you can explore even the seabed under the boat because it is totally transparent! In addition to the supplied oars, then, it can be equipped with an electric motor. Weight: 29 kg, length: 2.20 m, width: 1.20 m.

Stowing and keeping a long, strong line ready for use is always useful on a boat, especially when mooring in a roadstead. This one we offer is available in three different lengths: 60 m (42 cm ø) 80 m (49 cm ø) 100 m (54 cm ø). In addition to being useful for a possible stern anchor, it can be used in an emergency or as a tow line. But the main use in the roadstead is for mooring lines ashore.

Roadstead Accessories: Stand Up Paddle

The SUP has become such a popular accessory that there are now very few boats that do not still have it on board. In addition to being lightweight and stable, an inflatable SUP allows the whole family to have fun, and can also be used for boat-to-shore travel instead of a tender. This 3.20 m by 81 cm is very solid and fast, perfect for stowing on board with its 12 kg weight.
