In this case I own the mooring, would that matter to you.
It is my permanent summer place so by definition I have to trust it. It will be the lee shore a good percentage of the time.
The mooring buoy was a public one and I was reluctant to cut it but did in the end. As I sail around the barrier reef where there are many places where anchoring is prohibited or due to depth impossible I do use the public mooring where available. and would rather cut my line than the expensive pendants on the bouys.
