The Weekend in Black and White.

Heavy-Duty Carabiner Clip.

We used to use these for quick and easy boat mooring.




See many fine black and white photos by following the links on the Home Page.

@HansHB - no, a rope knot works best. We used to clip one of these to the mooring to hold us still while we tied the rope.

I thought these were primarily used in rock climbing, it makes sense for boating. I like the detail of the engagement, looks very secure.

Taken For Granted said...

Fine macro shots. Boat mooring? What ever happened to the quick and easy bowline knot? Didn't the metal of the carabiner damage the boat?

Dragonstar said...

@ Taken For Granted - We kept the carabiner attached to a line in the boat. When the tide was running hard, and it could run like a river in flood, we could clip the carabiner to our mooring to hold us in place until we'd tied the rope safely.
