Enter the length of the boat (ft) and the average wind speed (knots) into the Mooring Block Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Mooring Block Weight.

## Mooring Block Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Mooring Block Weight.

MBW = L * 10 + WS * 5

Variables:

• MBW is the Mooring Block Weight (lbs)
• L is the length of the boat (ft)
• WS is the average wind speed (knots)

## How to Calculate Mooring Block Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Mooring Block Weight.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the length of the boat (ft).
• The length of the boat (ft) is given as:: 40.
2. Next, determine the average wind speed (knots).
• The average wind speed (knots) is provided as: 10.
3. Finally, calculate the Mooring Block Weight using the equation above:

MBW = L * 10 + WS * 5

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

MBW = 40 * 10 + 10 * 5 = 450.00 (lbs)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

length of the boat (ft) = 30

average wind speed (knots) = 15
