Re: Mooring Line Interference with Anchor

I turn my anchor upside down on roller when boat is moored, worth a try.
Cheers, Lukita.

I put my one anchor that catches the mooring pendent on deck for now and will put a D ring in the bow stem at the bottom to the chain locker, as I did on previous boats. It stays shackeled there and the working end is fastened on deck when under way. I used it on moorings and as a snubber for my all chain rode.

works great, swings less and takes 2 feet out of the vertical side of the anchor scope
