Pen Tie-ups

Post by mySerenity »

We have been challenged with reversing into a tight pen now on about 20 occasions. Of those, six have been on my own and of the six, others have very kindle come out of the ‘woodwork’ to help on four approaches. I always accept the offers and find that their moral support and pointers a help. From their pointers, we have made our own tie-up technique/pattern and the last two occasions this plan has gone without hitch.



This in turn has now rubbed of on us to actively assist others in their pen tie-up predicaments, something I had never even thought of earlier. From the few I have seen/assisted, I am very happy with our progress given that two of the others ended in unfortunate damage incidents. The ‘bang’ from one was what alerted us to their tie-up dilemma.

Hi James, sounds like my berth. It is actually a mono berth, but because the mono in the berth beside me isn't too beamy I can fit with about

1 meter between us. So far, it's all good.

Jim.
