great sailing - but on the mooring...
Love my S2 27 sailboat. Great upwind sailboat, great interior. Everything i need/want. BUT, this boat tends to swing too much on its mooring, making for some interesting action in the mooring field.
The boat has twin cleats - P/S. It is attached to a 300Lb mushroom (35 feet of chain) by 2-10' foot pennants - equal length. Our mooring field is tight.
She has a tendancy to stay on one of the pennants, then swing over to the other pennant - regardless of tide, wind combination.
Any thoughts on a solution? Was thinking of a riding sail from sail rite as a possible solution.
