We’re going to put our Mk1 onto a mooring this May – September. The mooring is on the Clyde (Loch Long) and can be fairly choppy – mainly due to the wash from tugs and other large vessels, and occasionally in a blow. But surprisingly, there wasn’t much water in the boat after two weeks last year. The plan is to put an over-boom cover on the boat while on the mooring in order to limit the amount of water that can get in, rigged from in the boat like with a boat tent. Can anyone recommend a particular type? Alternative suggestions welcome too.
I have not come across a specialised cover as you describe but I guess with a bridle round the boat you could make a cover to suit. Boat tents quite often use 50mm velcro to fasten them to the bridle which would be easy to fasten from an alongside dinghy.
I used to leave my boat on a drying mud mooring all summer and got used to bailing it out each week before going for a sail but a cover makes much more sense.
