Special Mooring Challenge
We will be mooring our 22 foot sailboat 30 feet from the end of a dock. How can I run lines from the boat and the mooring ball so that I can pull the boat into the dock to board it. And then how should I leave the lines so that I can sail back to the mooring, tie up, and yet pull the boat back to the dock, get off, and pull the boat out to the mooring
again and leave it secured at the mooring but connected to the dock.
I'm thinking - run a line from the bow of boat through a pulley attached to the mooring ball and back to the dock with extra line length. Run a line from each side of the stern to the dock but crisscross them. Will this be enough to hold the boat securely ?
Then pull in on the stern lines as I let out the bow line which will pull the boat into the dock for boarding.
Any other ideas or comments? Thanks for your help.
