Re: Mooring ball too close?

mt formosa was assigned to a ball with a power boat next to it---of course they hit--and all damages were to my formosa, before i bought her....do move and prevent this from happening to you..my po was a boat virgin, and didnt know any better--i took pix and sent to mooring co, but they did nothing about the mayhem insofar as relocation of the offending power boat, which was in with deep keeled formosa type boats--between a ct 41 and a formosa 41--only hit mine, was decent distance from the other ct....get to a place with the correct amount of swing for each involved boat. 6 ft doesnt cut it.
