How To Construct A Permanent Mooring

Im going to try my hand at constructing a permanent mooring off my property. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.


  • There are many variables to consider in this equation however the basic setup is pretty much the same across the board.

    Starting at the bottom - heavy anchor or concrete block with a shackle attached to it.

    From there you want ground chain or "bottom chain" (1.5x max depth).

    Attach a light chain to the bottom chain (1x max depth) which will connect to your mooring bouy.

    Where your light chain attaches to the mooring buoy, also attach a small pick-up buoy to grab.

  • @drunkensailor Do you have an idea on what you want to use for a bottom weight to start this permanent mooring project?
