It depends a lot on where you're putting the mooring, as some places will have regulations on the type and size of mooring you can install. Also, it will depend on what kind of boat is going to be hanging off the mooring. A 14' daysailer might be fine with three 16 lb. danforths for a mooring, but a 30' 7000 lb. boat would not.

When asking a question like this, the more specific information with regards to type of boat, location, etc you give, the better the answers you will get.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
