What is the reference from MEG4 for the following statement ''Never cross your mooring lines and never have them acting against each other''

The requirement is quite obvious, it is the commonly accepted good practice of preventing tear damage of mooring lines. A protective shielding should be used if crossing of lines is unavoidable (often happens with small vessels). Some inspectors may accept arrangement with the protective shielding, but chances are low.

We have no access to MEG4 unfortunately, to give the exact reference. MEG3 doesn't contain this requirement, to the best of our knowledge.
