Re: Help me decide - Mooring bitt or cleat?
I like the bit on a small boat as I think it's actually more versitile - but it depends on chocks and fair leads more than anything else.
The one you have pictured seems to be rubbing on the pushpit before it goes to the chock?
I just helped a friend moor his boat, built a bridle out of dock lines and used both his 6 inch cleats, slightly uneven so he has a 'back up' if it chafes. Not the best, but what we could do.
I've got about a dozen boats moored in sight of my house, not one uses an actual pre-manufactured pennant.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
