The Art of Mooring
only had Happy Chance for three weeks but I'm pleased to say we've got
the whole mooring thing down to a fine art. What we've discovered is
that you don't have to shout wildly or gesticulate madly. (Because the
truth is that if I'm at the bow and Mr J's at the stern we can't hear or
see each other.) You just slow down, put the engine into neutral and
glide in! And now we have a system: I secure the stern first and then
sort out the bow. Simple, easy and stress-free (thanks to the bow
thruster!) All I have to do now is get a hang of throwing the ropes
over the mooring posts!
