Thread tangent.
Depends on where you are located and what local laws are. In some communities, being a resident entitles you to mooring rights. I did this at my sister's house and for a whopping $25/year to the village hall I was entitled to deploy my own mooring for the season.
I suggest you check with your local town/village/council clerks office to find out IF you can (legally), and where.
