  1. Great advice, easy to follow: although you actually did show it, it would have helpful to have stressed the importance of “hooking” the line, NOT the handle at the top of the buoy.

    Lots of sailors try to hook the handle and it’s often missed, going for the line is successful petty much 100% of the time.

  2. Exactly what I needed! After 20+ years on a mono, we are sailing a cat for the first time in April. I’m lone deck monkey, so mooring is my job.
