pdqaltair is on a distinguished road
Anchoring restrictions, from the Coast Pilot

"There is public access to the bulkheads and slips at
the eastern end of the harbor. Anchoring is forbidden in
any part of the harbor or the basins.
A “no-wake” speed
limit is enforced. A harbormaster enforces harbor regulations,
and a dockmaster supervises docking at the
municipal facilities. Gasoline, diesel fuel, and water are
available. Some marine supplies may be obtained in
town."

It is a customs port of entry, the Coast Guard has active operations, and barges come and go. Thus, no anchoring.

Often, when asking the Coast Guard for information about a specific harbor or passage, they will reffer the recreational sailor to the NOAA Coast Pilot as the primary information source.
