The Exeter Fire Dept was very nice this morning in their full response to my boat floating free from the mooring. I had dropped my own mooring for Winter to a low tide height and was using Bud Fields mooring while waiting for a new trailer hitch to arrive to be able to haul the scow out.

Buds shackle to his mooring chain let go. I should have inspected it to make sure the bolt was moused.

I was most fortunate the tide was inbound.

Word for the day.


n. Nautical

A binding or metal shackle around the point and shank of a hook to prevent it from slipping from an eye.
Thanks again to all that assisted and called my cell to alert me.
