So our neighbour, a fishfarm were so kind that they gave us a 3 ton mooring
with a huge yellow buoy connect to a very heavy duty chain. This has been great for our 42 feet sailboat. The only problem is that I have huge wear on my ropes going from the 20mm steel
ring on the top of the buoy to my boat
. I keep changing the ropes every month due to wear, which is way to often...
So i have added a shackle to the buoy then i have added 8mm steel
damper then 17mm rope
with metal eye to both side of my boat(one rope
to each cleat). However the buoy tends to spin around itself and twist my ropes around them self, and this is what makes the wear. How can avoid this? I was thinking about putting the ropes inside a garden hose.
