To figure out what size buoy you will need, determine the weight of the chain it must support. All chain has a stated weight per foot. Add another 25% to the total weight for safety. Always use chafing gear where mooring lines run through bow chocks or are likely to contact deck hardware. A thimble on the shackled end will prevent chafe at the buoy.
In a hard blow, the holding power of the mooring can be increased by lengthening the mooring pennant. This increases the scope of the mooring providing greater holding power - just be sure to check other boats in the moorage first to ensure you won't foul another moored boat. In adverse conditions, a second mooring pennant can be run to the top eye as a safety in case the primary pennant chafes through or fails. All shackles should be moused to prevent opening. Electricians plastic tie wraps are an excellent means of securing a shackle.
