We have a Cav 26 moored at Little Bucklands Beach about 200 metres off Graingers Point. Does anyone moor around there and have trouble getting their mooring to the surface? We are on a rope strop. It takes two of us to get the buoy rope out of the water but yesterday we had to run a sheet down the side deck onto a cockpit winch to get it up. We do have an anchor winch but have only just bought the boat and it is one of the things that doesn't go yet We've scraped some mussels off the rope as far down as we can reach but wonder if there is more or whether there is another issue like maybe the rope strop is too short and we are trying to lift the chain off the bottom. There is no noticeable difference between trying at high and low water. I had set up a diver to go down and have a look at slack water but unfortunately he got cold feet before going anywhere near the water.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
