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?
