I think this is First Team. I can't read the name when I enlarge it enough to be sure, but I think so.

This appeared in the current copy of Working Waterfront, in an article about dredging. Dredging I think the picture attached. If not, it's in the article.

Ever consider a little camo Travis? That boat oozes military toughness (to me anyway) and it seem like a little might go with the overall feel of it.

Maybe something that could be added and removed occasionally? A flag or covers for your bumpers (fenders) to ham it up a little.

I dunno about the camo. If you look closely at the overhead, you can see where the hailer was knocked off due to a seagull running into it.

They really need to watch where they're going :mad: grrr face! dang skyrats!

Curious,

How difficult is it to "tie up to a mooring ball" in the middle of a bay ??:rolleyes:

Looks "tricky".

Not much around to bump in to (other boats) when maneuvering into position.

360 degree access to the "ball".

Doesn't seem to be much tidal current.

How much practicing is needed to get it down "pat" ?? :D

Moorings are easy!! Just drive rite over it until the pennants get stuck in your prop and wallah!! Your moored :D

The harbor master's boat did just that...

Moorings are easy peasy, just did mine when I returned from career day for the second grade at the local school.

I didn't have any candy to hand out, but all the kids were clamoring over my setup. 3+ lb lobsters > candy



In mooring setups you just slide up to the grab buoy admidships, gaff it, find the eye on the pennant and slip it over your bow chock. Toss the pennant into the skein chock and you're done. In rough weather there could pose more of an issue, but it's the same basic idea. Just more waves going splash and wind going woosh.

My pennant is 30' long with a 12" eye, pickup buoy is on a line that is 6' or so. You can grab it pretty good and even if you're surging back with the wind and tide you should have enough time to do your thing on the bow.

And the second issue in a row, October and November. Nice shot of the Free-For-All down in Portland with all five of us running there.

Now if I could just get Mike to get all the facts straight that would be real nice.
