One sure doesn't want the copper paint scrubbing off the wooden hull by the mooring bouy. It's unsightly and the worms can get at you.I've used a mooring several times in the last 40 years or so but used the 12 ft bowsprit and a snatch block to the winch. I realize this isn't the answer for most of you but that's why gaffers rule.

I know that cove well. Fun overnight spot, but those outer moorings can be tough because the strong ebb/flood current can run against wind direction and make the boat lay at funky angles. I've had some luck setting the rudder at different angles and have also hoisted the mooring ball and lashed it to the clear. I've found the northern side less pronounced. Fair winds!
