Be no more strain on it than if you anchored,still water would be safe as no wave action.

It's how it is attached that is most important?

If it's a few screws I would be unhappy.

If it's through bolted with a backing plate into something decent not so bad.

I always run a line over my bollard to cleats (I happen to have) either side of the bow so my mooring line cannot bounce off in a blow or slop....

Burnsco may not have a bigger one for you but if you do need one they are for sure available, may even get a good one used off trademe.

Have you notified your insurance company as they are tightening up on mooring policies

What kind of insurance changes PJC?

I notice with everything else, moored boats are not the super cheap way to go they once were.

I just spent a couple of grand on a new block to stay in compliance.

I had a nice block sitting at home for free but Nooo not approved!

premiums have gone due to derelicts on moorings left to rot,some companires will not take on new mooring policies,existing rates have gone up,baileys are shying away from new policies, went to purchase a new vessel after ours was written off,no fault on our part as a derelict broke free and took ours out in its travels.
Found a broker up north who uses an overseas lloyds policy but to many conditions in place,ie in the event of a mishap you pay for repairs first then they will decide whether to reimburse?
The auckland harbour masters office have set of rules out which determines weight v size of vessel. 2 ton mooring was adequate for most 30ft now it seems to be 3 ton,pay to check.   We didnt go ahead with purchase,but looking again as piles seem to be ok for insurance companies.

Seems odd. Most of the rogue boats seem to be due to breakages as opposed to dragging. Extra weight isn't going to help that.

agree ,these derilict vessels someone must be paying the mooring fee??perhaps they need to be removed as soon as they look unseaworthy.

PJC, the solution is with the Council.
At Westhaven you have to be insured and have $5 million Public Liability cover and the Westhaven staff check that you have paid the premium every year.
If the Council insisted that every boat on a mooring had to be insured and have public liability insurance, we would not have a problem with derelict boats. The Council could immediately move them on confirmation the owner has no insurance.
So it is up to the Council to sort the issue out.
