Brisbane Moring pylons

Anyone at the Brisbane River attached to the moring pylons any chance of showing us some photos of what you actually attached too. Are there rings on the pylons or do you just put rope around them. How have they been during the strong winds recently. Thanks

Re: Brisbane Moring pylons

I am pretty sure last time I was there it was metal straps with rings, around concrete poles? There was at least one large concrete yacht hanging of the piles so they must be strong.
You should just jump on the train and check them out yourself?
Cheers

Re: Brisbane Moring pylons

Lines attach to vertical metal rings attached to piles:


Rings are close to water level at high water. Current runs hard, so arrive at slack water and be prepared to get the dinghy involved.

We found if there was a LITTLE tide running it was helpful. You could motor slowly into the tide, and maneuver the boat sideways between the piles. Then motor forward, attach the lines from the bows, then let out line and drift back to attach the stern lines, using rudders to get lined up.

Re: Brisbane Moring pylons

Especially on the midstream row, things can get exciting when the tidal flow is from astern and then there is a big wake superimposed on that situation.

Some years ago we were on the last upstream piles, facing downstream, outer row, and had a standing wave form that would break into the cockpit when a ferry would go by during max ebb. Left the piles and anchored just upstream from them... if hadn't been aboard when it started it might have been a real mess!
