Mooring a Laser 2


New Member
The lake where I sail is too high for me to beach. Can I tie a bowline around the mast and use it as a mooring line?


That would depend on a lot of factors, but if you do this loop the line through the bow eye before tying it to something. That way the load is carried by the mast but the bow will be pointed into the wind.

A light boat like a Laser 2 can be a problem at a mooring. Shifty, puffy winds in a squall can catch the boat from the side and capsize it.. It would probably be worse moored from the mast rather than the bow.
