Just raising the topic given that a friend's J-24 'Paddington' in Barbados has just got missing.
Peter Hoad's J24 'Paddington' has GONE MISSING. Please pass this information to anyone in the Caribbean region, especially those near Barbados, & the Lesser Antilles (St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad, etc) RB 15 J24 White . In red writing. U-SAIL & PADDINGTON on the side. A Power Boats sticker is under the boat name.

The mooring ball is missing too, so it is thought that something below 'broke'.

When was the last time that you did or had done a proper inspection of your mooring?

Have you had a link-by-link inspection?
