downeast450 My mooring in Seal Harbor rolls and changes constantly. If I am going to sleep aboard at the mooring to escape to the water just for an evening I sleep in a hammock. It hangs diagonally across main salon. With 2 snap shackles and a couple of permanent eye bolts installed, I can set up my simple rope hammock in a very short time and get rocked to sleep. I can sleep anywhere but I wouldn't choose the hammock if I could choose another anchorage and my berth.

This is true. Any boat can be caught with a beam wave in an anchorage. Although I am sure it was less rolly under any condition at anchor.

Cats aren't perfect, and I was funning. It's just my choice, and I live with her faults just as we all live with some kind of fault each of our boats have. Have a fun, and safe trip on the way home. As I typed you are going to love riding the stream home.....BEST WISHES .....i2f

Anchor sail helps

These guys have super ideas. I like a snubber, if the wind and current get us rolling. It may be another subject but a riding sail can help make anchorage comfortable too. We purchased one last year and it really made a nice difference. Our boat is a shoal draft and drifts easily but the anchor sail helps a lot.

Mokusiga What Labatt says is quite correct and does work well, but if the wind is light and flukey you will still have an uncomfortable night. Theis is because some times the yacht will lie to the wind and other times to the swell or current. You need a steady wind 5 kts or more from same direction.

I actually use my boom preventer line to act as this long snubber. It has a snap shackle like a spinnaker sheet and is quick and easy to rig to the hook on the snubber.

By leading this line to a cockpit winch (via a turning block or mid ships cleat) I have full control of the angle from the cockpit. Each boat will sit differently.

If you are really straining to pull the gear in as it is too short, extend the snubber using a double sheet bend and a length of mooring warp. It is taking only a low amount of strain. If I am ever worried about knot this slipping, I use a tiewrap (zip tie) to seize the tail to the standing part.
