Thread: Running mooring

  1. #1

    Default Running mooring

    Hello folks.

    A quick one for the trollers!
    I fish Loch Ness for salmon and have recently moved location.
    Iíve also changed over from a small 13Ē boat which i used to pull up and leave on the shore to a slightly larger boat (Orkney 16) which is on a running mooring (I think there are lots of different names for this but itís basically an endless rope tied fore and aft).

    Iím getting on ok so far, weights are on the bottom set at around 7ft deep and shoreline ropes are all set etc. Iím not quite sure where the snatch pulley should be though.
    Should it be clear of the bottom held up by the buoy or should it be on the bottom of the loch? If it is suspended, how deep should it be?

    Itís a stoney bottom and is fairly well protected from the wind although it can get rough occasionally.

    Iím completely new to this so any other advice would be much appreciated!

    You do not need a pulley. Just add a large galvanised shackle to the weight and run the rope through it. 19 mm rope should be perfectly o.k.

    we call them Outhaulers up here, one of the big insulators works for us and we keep it up in the water, as a gritty bottom ( no comments) would soon wear the rope and it's easier to untangle, or something like a wooden Deadeye, made from, Lignum Vitae if you use a shackle make sure it has been secured so it wont come undone, you could use a couple of Cable ties, we use this at a Hydro dam as the water goes up and down, but we get people pulling on Both ropes because they don't understand the concept, so we end up having to put every thing back again, easker1
