There are private and city operated mooring fields all throughout the Mid-Atlantic States and New England,- Annapolis, Newport, Port Washington, Block Island, Boothbay, Bar Harbor and even in Canada have mooring fields in a far greater concentration than in Florida and made available for a far greater cost than the moorings in Florida. Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida are the locations on the East US Coast with fewer mooring fields and more open areas available for anchoring. I can always find a place to anchor in the SE US, but Long Island Sound and through Maine it's often moorings or nothing.....City Island, Port Jefferson, Tennants Harbor, Cape Porpoise, Rockport, Camden, Portsmouth,'s a long list! Who started this myth about Florida being restrictive to anchoring? Take care and joy, Aythya crew
