Breakwater Marina is a cyclone rated facility with a dedicated 2020_Cyclone Management Plan, helpful staff and secure moorings.  

Breakwater Marina is committed to helping residents and boat owners prepare ahead of cyclone season in order to minimize damage to property and maintain personal safety. We’ve prepared our 2020_Cyclone Management Plan to be a useful information tool as well as reference to assist both the seasoned boaties and the uninitiated with their own readiness.

Every November we conduct a Marina wide Cyclone Audit to check each boat’s preparedness for upcoming severe weather.

Marina staff are onsite everyday and can assist vessel owners with their preparations.  if you are planning to leave the boat with us, let Marina staff know.

“WHY USE SPRING LINES?”
✅ A Spring Line helps stop your boat from moving backwards and forwards in the berth. Both winds, and tides will move your boat forwards and backwards in its berth.
⬅️ A FORWARD spring line will prevent your boat from moving forward. To add a forward spring line, secure a line to a dock cleat and run it forward to either a mid-ship cleat or all the way to a bow cleat.
➡️ An AFT spring line will prevent your boat from moving backwards. To add an aft spring line, secure a line to a dock cleat and run the line back to the middle (mid-ship) or back (stern) of the boat.
🔼 In your primary rope set-up, you should have a fore and aft spring on the same side of the boat. These lines will typically create a triangle shape or an X Shape depending on the location of the tie-off points you use.
✅ Spring lines should allow for a small amount of movement. Springs lines need to be adjusted in high winds because ropes stretch and therefore allow for the boat to travel a greater distance forward and aft in its berth.
✅ Finally, don’t forget to place fenders where any potential contact points occur.
