It seems the French islands like to have large tall mooring
buoys with big steel
(often rusty) rings on the top.
I tend to take a mooring
by taking a line from each bow cleat, looping through the eye of the mooring, then back to its original cleat.
I presume this is what most people do. As a multihull
owner then, how do you stop the mooring ball going underneath the boat
then having the steel
ring smash on the underside of the hull
each time it rises and falls?
I had this all night last night, with gouges and scratches out of the paintwork. I think some monohullers had a similar issue as I saw three other people at the bows of their boats trying to fend off the overly excited moorings.
