Sounds like your harbormaster is conservative. Nothing wrong with that. For a 10,000 lb boat, my recommendation on most locations on Long Island Sound would be 350 to 400 lbs. Defender is located in Connecticut and has good prices on moorings, chain, shackles, etc. Big issue with mushrooms is shipping costs. If you pick it up, it will save you a bundle.
