Bit the bullet Sunday & bought first ski. Psyched to join the club!! Live in a beach community in CT on Long Island Sound & plan to moor it w/ anchor/bouy abt 50-75 ft from shore. Generally calm waters w/ modest currents. What I don't know, & the slackers @ a local West Marine weren't able to help me with, is what do I need for an mooring (mushroom ... weight, chain, line, etc.??). On average about 6-8 ft deep @ high tide, w/ about a 4 ft high/low swing. If anyone has the magic method & formula, would appreciate some guidance. Have searched all sorts of Internet keyword combos & haven't been succesful in getting good advice ... yet ... so coming to the source(s). Thanks! Ski is 825 lbs.
