There’s nothing better than to be on a good solid mooring when you hit the bunk. It gives you a piece of mind so you don’t wake up in a cold sweat wondering if your anchor has given away because of a strong wind or a changing current. You don’t stress about drifting helplessly towards a patch of jagged rocks. You don’t live in fear of being snickered at by a bunch of other boaters who did a better job of anchoring than you. There’s no doubt mooring is the safer way to go and Catalina Island has plenty of them. I’ve moored so many times there I thought it would be instructive and interesting to show what a mooring really looks like from below…the basic anatomy of a mooring.
