I eventually want to move off my rented marina berth and onto a mooring, somewhere nice, like the Bay Of Islands.
Below is a couple pics of my bow set up.
If I do move to a mooring, I don't want to have to faff about removing the anchor and stowing it somewhere each time I leave the boat, and conversely faff about setting it up again each time I visit the boat and want to go for a sail.
I have thought about using one of the fairleads you can see there on the bow plate, and just leaving the anchor there on the bow roller - but I fear in a wind / tide change, then it is going to become awful tangled there, with chafe a big danger.
Any ideas from anyone that uses a mooring regularly?
