You just have to get a good angle on it - which is right about when you're floating off and can barely reach it anymore!

I can give it try again. Now I use a hook that came with my boat that never fails to grab. The catch is that it is a hook that is designed for temporary use, ie grab the mooring ball while you attach a more permanent line. Maybe I'll try my Hook & Moor to feed that permanent line.
