Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor
I have good anchoring gear with an oversized Manson Supreme and 350' of chain. But I don't feel it will ever be more secure than a properly sized, installed, and inspected mooring. My boat has ridden storms at its' mooring where my boat took the whole system with a 5,000 pound mooring block for a ride, but the boat didn't go far. I don't believe my anchor would have been better.
I've seen a boat on a mooring ball in Put-N-Bay, OH go drifting after the ring on the mooring ball broke in half. So it probably depends on how well they are maintained.
