Mooring pendant for Pearson 35

I have a Pearson 35 heading to a mooring for the first time. The mooring is brand new with w 250 lbs mushroom and a Taylor T3C ball.

I've never had a mooring before. Does anyone have recommendations for pendants - type, length?

Okay, I bought two 16-foot 3/4" YALE MAXI-MOOR PENDANTs (one as a slack backup) and two chafe guards.

I'd go dual Yale with one being 15 feet or so and one being 18 feet or so. You want one longer than the other by about two feet. I would not go any shorter than 15 feet as it will create to steep of an angle off the chock for chaf.

250 pounds is a tad on the light side for a 35 footer unless you are very, very well protected. 350 pounds is the general min recommendation for 35 feet..

We're in a cove that is pretty well protected, but maybe I should have gone heavier ... oh well, the deed is done.

Oy, I didn't think about the pennants being different lengths ... I was picturing that they can be attached to bow differently. They are both 16'.

Can't I just cleat the two pendants differently (both being 16')?
