Picking Up A Mooring Buoy

Picking Up A Mooring Buoy singlehanded or with a crew needn’t be difficult. When I first tried picking up a mooring buoy I got it completely wrong. But now I know the right way when picking up a mooring ball or buoy. It’s not at all difficult, and this video makes it so easy.

Oh PS: If you would like to buy our book “Driftwood from the Shannon to the Marne” the story of our sea journey from Ireland to the French canals, follow this link: and thank you.

Boating Europe

The best boating Europe has to offer is here in Ireland. The River Shannon is probably the best boating in Europe. With dozens of beautiful lakes, free moorings, only 6 locks in 365Klm of river. It’s clearly the best Boating Europe has to offer. Oh did I mention the fishing, the great food and the Guinness too?
