Re: My last little bit of planning

I am getting ready to leave as we speak, though I'll still have internet alot of the time.

Two quick questions running through my head.

1. I read Washington marine parks have public mooring balls. I also looked at the way people properly tie to the balls. But this was a person in Florida. THey had two lines wrapped around the eye and tied up pretty close to the buoy. Is this how you do it up in Washington? Don't need too much line to absorb shock?

2. Do marinas usually have a place to go and tie up so you can go to shore and eat or take a shower for free?
