Winter in Adygea: top-10 places where we recommend to visit

Base equipment for water tourists

In recent years, more and more people choose sports recreation. Kayaking trips, rafting on the rapids on catamarans, rafting. Such a vacation is gaining popularity, because the inventory for it is becoming cheaper and more accessible to a wide range of consumers.

What is required to organize a catamaran or kayak trip or hike?

We need not only the boats themselves - we need a convenient berth. After all, modern tourists are waiting for comfortable conditions for their vacation. If you are the owner of a boat station, yacht club or just a comfortable approach to the water - our advice for you!

Often, organizers of water trips have the necessary equipment and boats. But beyond that, they must provide:

  • storage space for boats and equipment;
  • a place for assembling boats and catamarans;
  • the possibility of convenient launching;
  • the possibility of convenient embarkation and disembarkation of tourists.

Therefore, building a comfortable pier is the next thing to do after purchasing the inventory.

How to properly and safely place a berth

The pontoon berth can be located along the coast, forming an embankment, or perpendicular to the coast, going into the center of the reservoir. How you position your dock depends on several factors:

  • How many ships should be placed along it. The location along the coast is less favorable, ships can only be moored on one side.
  • Features of the coastal zone. If the bottom near the shore is muddy, shallow, overgrown with reeds, it is more convenient to build a pier perpendicular to the shore.
  • Strong current. In this case, it is not recommended to build a pier oriented to the middle of the reservoir - it can be carried away by the current.

How to build a quay that meets these requirements?

The most convenient way to organize a pier for kayaks and catamarans is to use pontoons. Pontoon is a floating platform of various dimensions and carrying capacity, depending on its purpose.

Pontoons have many advantages for use at small boat yards, boat and sports clubs, camp sites:

  • the pontoon is stable on the water, it is safe for even several people to be on it at the same time;
  • the pontoon is easily and firmly attached to the shore, positioned on the water;
  • the pontoon has a low freeboard, and it is convenient to board a kayak, catamaran or other boat from it;
  • several pontoons are easy to connect and assemble a berth of the desired shape.
