Mooring Basic Information—specific information

 will be provided by your Town Harbormaster


· A typical system consists of a mushroom anchor connected with two shackles (of the same size as the bottom chain) to a heavy bottom chain which should be about 1.5 times the maximum depth of water.

· A swivel with a shackle on either side will connect the bottom chain to a smaller piece of top chain whose length should be equal the maximum depth of water. The top chain will go through the mooring buoy and a shackle will secure it.

· A rope pennant will go from this shackle to your boats mooring cleat.

· A pickup buoy would be tied into the pennant eye splice for easy retrieval when returning to the mooring.

Swivels & Shackles are USA products
