I have a lot of problems with my mooring. The mushroom and the chain are loaned to me by a friend who doesn't have a boat in the water. I have a pick up pendant and 2 bridles. They are forever getting entangled around on another. I pick up the pendant and then run the bridles through the chocks and secure them to the main cleat on the deck. Some people leave the bridles in the water when they leave the mooring. If i do this I have a spaghetti factory when I get back.
Maine sail: Do you have a drawing / photo of your setup?
It's the only part of sailing so far that drives me a little batty. Ideally I guess I would like to get out to the mooring, drop the bridles, sail, come back in and hook up, and go on my merry way.
Asking too much?
