Re: Mooring lines

Pull really hard as you do the tucks and work the earlier tucks down to the working interface after each tuck. As long as you start the first tuck high enough into the eye the thimble will be locked in place.

If you have trouble after that I'll meet you at Davis' Pub during the Annapolis Boat Show and help you right at the bar. *grin* Seriously it isn't hard as long as you keep tugging every tug.

sail fast and eat well, dave
