FAQ

DO I NEED TO ASK THE PORT’S PERMISSION TO INSTALL MYOR?

Absolutely not, you do not make any changes to the pier or the port structure, and you do not extend the area you currently occupy.

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF CONNECTING THE CABLE?

After hooking up to MYOR, you can start driving to move away from the pier; adjust the number of revolutions to the minimum to ensure the necessary thrust in order to counteract wind or current that could push the boat against the pier. In this condition the boat is stationary and stable at a distance twice that of the normal mooring; for this reason adjusting the cables that will not be stretched is very simple and less tiring. When the boat is correctly secured to the cable, reverse the gear of the engine and finish the mooring as usual without the risk of hitting the pier.

WHAT IS THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MYOR FLEX and ONE or TWO?

Using MYOR FLEX doesn’t change your routine therefore you can get completely close to the pier without damaging the boat or the mooring system. MYOR FLEX is positioned out of the water. You can also launch the hook inside the perimeter during mooring operation; the hook positions and rotates to prevent accidental release. With MYOR ONE or TWO it is possible to use the ring with the boat hook or to automate the mooring with the bow accessory; this system requires higher precision in the mooring maneuver.

WHAT IS THE DISTANCE THAT I HAVE TO KEEP FROM THE PIER WITH MYOR ONE OR TWO?

It depends on where you position MYOR: if it is on the side in correspondence with the mooring bitts of the pier, you can get close without problems, if you install it centrally to use the bow, you must keep a distance until you touch the float (about half a meter).

IS IT EASY TO USE ON DEPARTURE?

Yes, hook MYOR and connect the rope to the bitt of the boat; after starting the engine, release the cable and the mooring ropes; at this point release from MYOR by using the boat hook.

WHAT TYPE OF MAINTENANCE SHOULD I PROVIDE TO THE SYSTEM?

Like any nautical equipment, it is necessary to check the wear of the parts in relation to the frequency of use.

With MYOR ONE or TWO lubricate the mechanism with water resistant grease every three months, and if necessary you can clean the float with a brush or treat it with an anti-fouling.

DO I HAVE TO MAKE PERMANENT CHANGES TO MY BOAT IF I USE THE BOW?

No, I can secure the coupling of the bow in the most appropriate position with a double-sided tape provided. The bow can be positioned and removed only in the mooring and unmooring phases; I can remove it and pack it or keep it upside down near the runners.

HOW TO PREVENT THE PRESENCE OF MARINE VEGETATION ON THE FLOAT?

The float can be easily cleaned with a brush or a plastic spatula, and it can also be painted with anti-fouling.

AM I FORCED TO CARRY MY BOW HANGING?

No, I can remove it and pack it or keep it upside down near the runners.

WHAT SIZE DOES THE BOW HAVE WHEN I REMOVE IT?

9 cm diameter at the bigger point and a length of 1.3 m to 2 m depending on the model.

DO I HAVE TO MAKE HOLES IN MY BOAT?

No, I can secure the coupling of the bow with a double-sided tape in the most appropriate position.

DO I HAVE TO MAKE PERMANENT CHANGES TO MY BOAT?

No, the bow can be positioned and removed only during the mooring and unmooring operations. The mooring rope of the bow can be fixed to the bitts or it can be connected to the winches on sailboats to adjust the distance from the pier.

DO I HAVE TO MAKE PERMANENT CHANGES TO THE PIER?

No, I use the bitts or the rings on the pier to position a chain that connects them; I will connect MYOR to this (in case of buoy I will use the coupling bar).

DOES THE HOOK AUTOMATICALLY RESET WHEN I GO OUT?

Yes.

WHAT POWER SHOULD THE ENGINE RECEIVE AT THIS STAGE?

Adjust the number of engine revolutions to the minimum in order to ensure the necessary thrust to counteract wind or sea current that might push the boat against the pier.

IS IT EASY AND CONVENIENT TO USE ON DEPARTURE?

Yes, it is possible to install and hook the bow in a few seconds and, after starting the engine and unhooking the mooring wires and ropes, it is possible to unhook it using the boat hook or a twisted-pair cable controlled by the steering gear even if far from the stern (or prow).

WILL IT ALSO WORK WHEN THE WIND BLOWS?

Yes, it is one of the main reasons why MYOR was designed.

WILL IT ALSO WORK WHEN THERE ARE WAVES?

Yes, it is necessary to properly adjust the height of the bow and slowly proceed on the last meter.

CAN I UNHOOK FROM THE STEERING GEAR WITH A ROPE INSTEAD OF THE BOAT HOOK?

Yes, it is possible to use a twisted-pair cable to be operated from the wheelhouse.

WHAT CAN I DO IF I CANNOT CLEARLY IDENTIFY THE POSITION FROM THE WHEELHOUSE?

I can apply the reference rod on the float.

HOW TO PREVENT THE PRESENCE OF MARINE VEGETATION ON THE FLOAT?

The float can be easily replaced or painted with anti-fouling

DOES THE FLOAT DO DAMAGES IF TEMPORARILY TOUCHES THE GELCOAT?

No, it is made of plastic like that of bottles and does no damage.

EVEN NEAR THE PORT WITH ROUGH SEAS?

Yes.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

This operation takes place in less than a minute.

IS IT EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND DISASSEMBLE?

Yes.
