Re: Yikes! Mooring System Failure

The swivels are usually the weakest points...Im interested to see it thats where it failed. Why not just use two shackless to connect heavy and light chain?

This may seem dumb, but what not use heavy chain for the whole system?

Where actually is your mooring...on the Magothy? Which cove or creek?
