Re: Bump in the night

Have tried small 10 lb dinghy anchor set of the stern with a
good size elastic bungy tied into the anchor line (set up like
a snubber) works as long as things don't change much.
Have not tried following overnight...
if benign conditions expected to last the night moor to stern cleat with extended mooring line looped to mooring line and then
run dinghy painter through said loop and pull painter in and tie off.
Dinghy should stay off stern. Stern should provide enough surface resistance to stay off mooring ball...or not??
