Dinghy painter cut
      #1695519 - 05/02/16 12:28 PM (24.107.72.176)

Any experience on loosing your maintenance deposit for a clean cut of the dinghy painter. NO PROP WRAP. Our fault of course due to poor communication while backing out of a tight slip and not securing the dinghy to the vessel. We were dead slow astern and the prop cutter did it's job. No engine rpm decrease or need to dive under. Both painter ends floating free.

Don't know what your deposit was, but Think you would only be charged the cost of a new painter.

Toss the shorter of the two length, return with the longer piece tied btwn the boat and dingy! But seriously, how much is it really?

Sounds like a great time to learn the end to end long tuck splice for polyprop.

Cost of a piece of dingy line should be pretty minimal.

Was the charter company Voyage by any chance?
