Re: Med Mooring

There are a couple of good points there.

* I always wear gloves after cutting my hands to ribbons on some tiny shelfish on the mooring line itself, not the slime line

* To pick up the slime lines, I attach a 6mm line either side of the boat, one end secured to the bow and the other with a large snap hook secured to the swim platform. My partner throws stern lines ashore and hooks on the snap hooks. She secures the stern where she wants it and I pull the the bow lines forward all the way to the bow. Quick and easy

Cheers
Brownie

[QUOTE=Buena Vista;739411]

Hmmmm. While this approach seems neat in theory, it would worry me in practice, especially in the Greek and Turkish harbours we often frequent. Often, the mooring lines are not neatly continuous but joined somewhere along their length with a big knot that could jam your hook halfway along and leave the mooring line at just the right height to foul your prop. Also, it's not that unusual to have to abort in strong wind conditions and make a new approach - not easy if you've meanwhile had to release the bow end of your 6mm line (because you can't retrieve the hook) and it's now lying right across the harbour.

Re: Med Mooring

Athene,

Thanks for the advice, in fact that very thing happened a couple of days ago in Porto Venere. No problem though as we do not attach the forward hooks until our stern lines are secured. The hook slid until it hit a knot and then I just pulled the rest up as normal and retrieved the 6mm line after I had secured the bow line.

Cheers
Brownie

Re: Med Mooring

Yesterday helped a nieghbour tie up next to me, his 'lazy line' had so many large clumps of muscles and barnicals on it that the only way to do it was to walk the line forward carefully with gloved hands. Any other kind of attachment would have been fouled easily.
