The 2010 boating season is off to a great start with above average air and water temperatures here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. It is important to thoroughly inspect your mooring setup at least once a year for potential weaknesses that may result in your watercraft breaking away during high winds. It is crucial to inspect not only the pennant for potential problems caused by natural corrosion and wear but also your chain, hardware, and mooring. If your mooring is located in shallow water a simple mask and snorkel should suffice, if your mooring is located in deeper water scuba diving would allow for a more thorough inspection.

  • Inspect your pennant and the hardware that secures it to your chain or buoy, confirm all of the cotter pins are still intact and in good shape.
  • Check all connection points for corrosion and wear.
  • Slowly descend down the chain checking each link for imperfections.
  • Thoroughly inspect your lead chain. (the section of chain that attaches directly to your mooring.) The lead chain is constantly being dragged across abrasive rocks and sand which could cause it to fail sooner than other parts of your setup.
  • Inspect your mooring itself for any potential problems, pay special attention to the eye bolt for wear and corrosion.
