Hi FP owners,
How do you hook up to a mooring
Bought a Lavezzi
not long ago and be the first time on a mooring
Hooking up the classic
way with a line to/from each cleat and back through the pendant eye, the mooring lines chaff on the outside of both hulls and also damaging the warp the former owner put on the bows.
Looking at other FP cats on the mooring field all have the same problem that both bow cleats
are mounted „next“ to the bow seats where the stations prevent from running the mooring lines inwards over the bows.
All the FP charter
cats here (Lavezzi;Lucia, Astrea, Lipari
..) have chaff marks on both bows from the mooring lines to the mooring balll. That cannot be the solution...
How did you solve this?
Only permanent solution I see is somehow hooking the mooring lines to the eyes for the bridle
. But how to do this? If I use a bowline knot
I won‘t be able to open it when strong wind
on the mooring pulled the knot
