Re: How short is too short
Why do you say that?
And what setup do you recommend different length mooring lines?
When attaching to a mooring with a ring and no pennant(s) I would run two bridles of different lengths. Each bridle would run from a cleat through a chock to the ring with a full round turn to the chock on the other side and to the other cleat.
That is my standard set up on the Parks mooring balls in the Gulf Islands.
In heavy weather, if one bridle wore through the other is a back up.
