Can't say as we've had any "loud conversations" I / we agreed right at the beginning that we were going to make mistakes as we were both learning, and would not yell. For the most part we drop and pull up the anchor without saying a word and do it all by hand signals..... and not the single digit signal either

Well we haven't tried to anchor anything of size but on our 20ft power boat, my wife and I have it down to a science.

I like the idea of the headsets though.

May I ask a mooring question?

I currently sail a Hunter 240 and have it on a permanent mooring. I was looking at getting new pennants (2) and was wondering if catenary length matters from the boat's cleat to the mooring ball? Typically, with a 24' boat would I need 15', 20' or 25' feet length? Does it matter? I have room to swing, but do not want it to wander too much.
