Not going to be clear for long, the spring tides this week will flush out the winter water and bring in nutrients to jump start the ecosystem.

I was up in Friendship ME yesterday. Picturesque to say the least. Looks like they have a mooring guy in the harbor already.... ;) Nice to see them using granite, not cement blocks.

View attachment 105185 2nd picture Have you heard of using a staple instead of an eye bolt through the granite block to attach the chain? It made sense to me as far as strength. I think the staple possibly made out of cold rolled steel?

Granite isn’t popular down here. So I have limited experience

No !!, Once in a lifetime Skill. :) After all isn't that what you always try to do ?
Haha. If it happens again I’ll agree with you.:)

I do try to figure out what is going on down there. Adjusting scope and adding buoyancy to the trip line to alter my grapnels chances. 20 minutes for this particular mooring, that’s good IMO.

What do you think of the Dormor anchor? I would guess its approved to use in Newport Hbr
Yes, it’s approved. It’s fallen out of favor with me recently. Pound for pound a mushroom has more holding power, imo. Shallow water application, it has some advantages. These type with the large eye do last a long time.
