Swinging Mooring

With this mooring, the vessel is tied to a buoy, which is itself attached via a chain or rope (known as a riser) to a weight, or anchors on the fundus (riverbed). The arrangement allows the vessel to move so that it will head into the wind or the tide – whichever is the stronger. Such moorings may be in deep water or drying out, sometimes known as mud berths.
