Re: Mooring - attaching pendant

Murph. I always call marinas in the spring to let them know I do in water as well as dry mooring inspections and maintenance. i KNOW for a fact some marinas in my area have had their moorings wet for at least 5 plus years. I always get the same answer.. Ahhh we dont need that its too expensive to hire divers, OR oh we have a scuba diver who does that.. Moorings SHOULD to be inspected every year, OR after an extreme tide or strong storm. Sadly people ignore moorings until something bad happens.

Re: Mooring - attaching pendant

Yeah, I've seen boats break moorings in a blow and go careening into anyone downwind. Guess that's why I'm pretty cautious about what I attach my boat to. Some of the moorings marinas rent out are grossly undersized for the boats on them. A lot of times the anchor is big enough and has sucked down so far it's never moving but they scrimp on the swivels and shackles. It's not difficult to drag the whole shebang up on deck when you first hook up to take a look at what you're trusting your boat to.

Agreed. Ive actually been moving to the Helix mooring systems. In my opinion when installed the right way hold better and it leaves less of an environmental footprint. Heavy is good but design is sometimes is better.
