How to Setup Your Bridles

Dear members

Bill Stanbrook, a long time Mooring Ball dweller, came up with a system that worked for him to keep bridles from getting wrapped up around the ball/chain:

Here’s what he said:

“What I found was by securing a float to the bridles near as possible to the mooring connection keeps upward pressure in the mooring lines and keeps them from wrapping around the mooring. The extra floats keep the line from wrapping around also. The float were bought at Spartan and a slot cut to get both lines through then the piece fitted back in. I just fastened it in place with rope. The whole rig worked well and no more problems with the bridles wrapping and chafing on the mooring.”
