    Moorings at my marina lined up and ready to be dropped. And my Sea Ray in her slip.

    There are a variety of sizes in the photo. I don’t know the weights, but the boats in the basin range from 20 ft bow riders to a 35 ft Mainship flybridge, and a number of 33+ft sailboats. Before I was in the slip my 270 AJ used a 250lb mooring anchor.

    Those mooring anchors look kinda puny for a boat of any size. Are those for a lake?

    Was at our marina briefly this rain soaked Easter. There is still ice in the harbour. Latest in years there has been ice this late into April. Most boats still under cover or shrink wrap and not the usual crowds of buffing an polishing.

    No, but it is for a particularly well protected part of a harbor off Long Island Sound. The are probably weighing at 200-400 lbs. My own anchor is 250 lbs. There are other larger ones still waiting to go in.

    The local harbor master is a stickler for tackle inspections and proper sizing to the boat, and they tend to be conservative. Not all areas here are so well protected.

    The weight you gave clarified a lot for me. That should be plenty for most boats. Thanks.

    I was in Albany on Saturday. It was definitely colder than Long Island by about 10 degrees. Temps dropped here today, too.

    We had a freeze warning last night so we had to bring all of my wife's outdoor potted plants into the garage. What the heck is going on with this goofy weather?

    I've got Al Gore on speed dial. Let me call him to see what he thinks about this Inconvenient Truth.
