Re: New mooring setup fubar
Our mooring setup for our marina is a single over sized pendant coming off chain under mooring ball leading to a double bridle with
good sized throat.
(I added float to pendant)
Never any wrap/abrasion.
I was extremely unhappy with set up at first, and reached a
agreement with dockmaster to set up additional storm pendant (heavy and longer then other) when severe conditons coming.
Never really needed it.
We are right on western LIS rather exposed but not a lot of fetch and after many years, and a few hurricanes marina never lost a boat to that single penant parting (have had boats chafe at chocks).
...for what its worth...
Mooring is pulled/inspected every year.
