Would you explain this comment please.
Did you have a problem with releasing the pennant?
Is it that you are reluctant to cut the pennant in an emergency?
In this case I own the mooring, would that matter to you.
It is my permanent summer place so by definition I have to trust it. It will be the lee shore a good percentage of the time.
