Quiet is good!
While at anchor or on a mooring I always secure the halyards so they won't clang. I connect them to a clamp on the deck. I've seen some nearby that use the bungies and they seem to work fine. Its considerate to keep it quiet for the neighbors...me I like quiet
My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
