Now we have a convenient way to stow our 250 meters of floating mooring lines. These lines will be used for the traditional 3-point moorings used in the bays in Patagonia, where you want to stay close to the trees of the shore in order to minimize winds. So you drop the anchor from the front, and then tie two lines to the trees on shore to get a fixed mooring point with no swinging. The lines need to be floating since they are very long and would be too heavy to handle if they were traditional sinking rope.
