This is the second time we've moored at Monroe, both times there was no line connected to the buoy/can. This makes it extremely difficult to tie off. It was very windy and impossible to hold the boat in place with a boat hook. Luckily someone in a kayak caught the bowline and tied it to the buoy for us. I've been boating for 42 years in case you think this is some kind of amateur complaining.
