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?

Cheers.

Sister a roller onto the starboard side of your existing anchor prod thing. Not much further forward of the stem, so you keep some strength there.  Ensure that the mooring line can't lift up off the roller.

Twin legged bridle off the main bollard.
One leg out of each lead either side of the bow roller arrangement.
Chafe protection in the leads.

On the outer end will depend a bit on which type of swing mooring it is.

That's how my tri was set up.
Works really well.

Just a shame the bottom end of the mooring crapped out on me.

Ah well, I needed a winter project.

Which reminds me, how much for a decent swivel KM?

Plonk some carpet on your deck loosen your chain and swing the anchor up onto the deck,fast and simple.Or just tie your anchor up onto your pulpit.

Thanks.  I'd have to take the "hoop" of the anchor sprit to do that....and I would feel uneasy with the anchor left on deck no matter how well you had secured it - but thanks for the idea!

I hook my anchor over the pulpit and tie it on.    Takes only a few minutes to deal with.
