that is correct... all a mooring really is, is an anchor of some sort with a permanently attached rode, that you connect your boat to. Scope is generally less of an issue, since the scope should have been set when the mooring was placed. Some mooring anchors, like the Helix Screw anchors, require less scope than others... The three anchors set in an equilateral triangle type mooring also doesn't require all that much scope, since much of the scope is already laid out along the bottom, where the three anchors are joined at a swivel.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
