I am now a boat owner and wanted to say hello, not had the best of starts only had the boat 3 weeks when the mariner emptied and pulled the back cleat out.

Things can only get better I hope, can’t wait for the weather to improve and get out on the river

Hi Frank, that’s a sad start. A short while ago, I saw some pictures of a boat which had had its cleat pulled out. Is was an orange colour, was that yours?

Hi Frank When mooring you need to tie on to the cleet farest away from the bank,ie port cleet starboard mooring post or if stern on moored cross over the stern ropes, this will give you the most scoop, the same with for and aft, tie on the rear cleet and tie to as far in front as practicable to a mooring post this allows the boat to float up and down without straining the rope/cleats while still keeping control of boat movement.

Hi Frank and welcome to the forum, I assume You must be on the southern rivers to have that much fall in water level  bad luck not a good start just remember that with boats you never know what's going to happen next so have a separate savings account just for that and you can't go far wrong.

Unless you can’t afford to put anything in it!
