Weird electric mooring lines

38-M-12110“An easier life for boaters everywhere – that’s what Engbo is about…” A company called Engbo has come up with the Engbo Maxi model 38-M Electric Mooring System.

This is a system comprising a hollow deck cleat, and under deck electric winch and a special mooring line with a ball at the end (to stop it dissappearing into the hollow cleat). It even has a wireless remote control!

 

Hmm…the idea is to make mooring easy, but is this not a complex solution to simple task? I would have thought it was increasing the risk of failure by snagging during the critical tasks of mooring or casting off. Sureley it is not an advance even if it appears to be labour saving…thoughts?…
