1st nor'easter

Hey all,
I am experiencing my 1st nor'easter in NE with my PSC31. She has a double 7/8 double braided line pennant each with a galvi thumble attached to the top of my "pass through" mooring ball. The two pennant lines are laced together with for the first 6 feet with small stuff and floats to make a bridle. The bridle needs to be a bit tight so that one bridle line does not wrap around the mooring ball when things go "willy nilly".
There is not much fetch from the NE in my harbor but if the wind was out of the SW there would be 3or4 footers. As the boat sails back and forth
the loaded pennant crosses the bobstay, which I was able to cover with a length of 5/8 clear tubing split and taped closed. There is also double chafing gear on the pennant where the bobstay makes contact with the pennant. Seems to be wearing fine for now.
Question is: the hawsers in the bulwarks are three feet back from the bow, how would the boat behave with a single pennant or both pennants on the same side??

Regards,
Steve

From my anchoring experience with attempting a single hawse hole I don't think the single side is a good idea. It presents a lot more windage and swinging. I no longer use that method of holding the chain.

We have moored our boat with a single pennant (smaller than yours) through the hawse hole for as long as we've owned her. We get plenty of wind at times, but little wave action. Chafe on the bobstay has not been a significant issue.

But New England harbours are not nearly as sheltered as Chesapeake creeks.

For anchoring, we bring the rode in over the roller.

One worked for me

I used to have to anchor Asylum out in a creek during hurricane warnings and we did have some hurricanes, Cat2, blow through. Using one hawse worked just fine with a lot of chafe gear. Although I was never out to watch during the storms, everything seemed fine in the prelude and aftermath.
