Re: Mooring ball too close?

I think you'll have to wait until a boat uses the mooring beside you to see if it's too close. When you have a boat on it and pulling the chain/rope it might end up a good distance from you. Both of my moorings are in mooring fields (one of them very crowded) and it often seems the other moorings are too close when there is no boat on them. If you're in a marina or yacht club, perhaps you can ask the manager to keep an eye on things when another boat is using the mooring beside you, at least until you're sure you both have swinging room.
