Need infor on anchor/mooring GA/SC Coast

I have lived on board for 8 years and have never stayed in a marina. Here in FL some of the cities have tryed to outlaw anchoribng out but more often ahan not the laws have been struck down when taken to court. The maratime law lets you anchour anywhere as long as you are not in the chanel.
I made a moring for my sefl. Two 8 ft augers, the power companies use them to ancher power poles. They get rid of them when they get bent, free of small cost. Then 100 ft of chain. At this point I attached a 55 gal drum filled with concreet and engine parts. Befor filling the drum I put a pice of 2 in ID PVC through the side. I put a shorter pice of chain through the PVC and shackeled it to the chain at the 30 ft point. A swivel and ball at the end. I road out 2 huracines.
