Last time I visited Percy for some evening fishing I noted the front rope was snapped. As I had the front on a spring line it had held.
I made good the mooring. Due to family caring responsibilities we have not been able to get to Percy and tonight Kev our boat neighbour very kindly phoned to tell me he had re-secured Percy after finding the boat across the cut. Thank Kev
You will see the rope is not the best, I am not sure if it is just not able to take the weight of Percy as boats come past at less than tickover or a naturally wearing . The recent drought and then rain has no doubt played havoc with the levels resulting in varying strain and slack on the ropes.
So tomorrow we will pop over and sort out some stronger more up to the job rope. Lesson learnt.
I should have read this and replaced the natural fibre rope as soon as we got Percy.
