Re: Mooring ball too close?

As joe said if it has excess chain you might be able to yank it back away with your dink. Power boats and sailboats usually don't swing at anchor together. They will each react to wind and current in different ways. A deep keel sailboat should moor near other deep keel sailboats. When I pickup a mooring I generally back down on it to stretch it out and to make sure it is secure.
