I've seen that video. Wow!

I would be willing to guarantee that skipper did not take ASA104 and was shown how to properly anchor or pick up a mooring. (Or they were drink) Moorings are most common and really worth "vacation" dollars anyway.

Just don't force things. I you don't get it the first time, you go around and try again. You will never see anyone in that mooring field ever again! No need to be self conscious.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
