Pamlico, the mooring pennant is the line attached to the mooring ball to pick up and put on your bow cleat. No need for your own.
That's what I was wondering. So is the line we pick up long enough to make it to the bow cleat? I was assuming we had to connect our bowline to something.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.
