Anchorages, low-cost moorings in the Eastern US?

Hey all, I'm hoping to do some cruising starting in New England down the east coast of the US this summer, and the biggest expense I keep coming up against is moorings. My cruising buddies and I are making our budget work with acquiring and maintaining the boat, but it seems like the cost of keeping a boat somewhere for any period of time are (a) troublesome for our meager budget (b) widely variable.

So here are my questions: Are there any free anchorages along the Eastern seaboard of the US, and how would I find them? And, is there a list or even any recommendations for low-cost transient moorings (or a longer-term mooring in New England) for this summer?

Thanks everyone, you might have a part in making my dream a reality...
