Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

Another consideration is current and tidal range in that area. The current is over 2 knots and the tidal range is 8'. A mooring field will allow more boats into the same area safely. The boats it will attract will be more likely to spend money at local restaurants and shops. A lot of the boats anchored there and in factory creek are an eye sore. Cleaning up the area will make the area more attractive from the water and shore.
