Two comments. 1) Really stop the boat when retrieving the mooring line. If there is any way left on, you will be surprised at how hard it pulls.
2) If you have an anchor on a bow roller, the mooring line will most likely interfere with it. Know what you will do. Many times I have had to remove the CQR from the bow roller and put it on deck. This takes a fair amount of effort in an awkward position, so if a female spouse is handling the bow, be ready to lend a hand.
