I know that cove well. Fun overnight spot, but those outer moorings can be tough because the strong ebb/flood current can run against wind direction and make the boat lay at funky angles. I've had some luck setting the rudder at different angles and have also hoisted the mooring ball and lashed it to the clear. I've found the northern side less pronounced. Fair winds!
