Re: picking up a vacant mooring
Take Five makes a good point, and I subscribe to it. Personally I avoid other people's moorings because quite frankly I don't like meeting strangers under those circumstances, and to trust my boat with a stranger's mooring integrity?! Never.
Now, I had a 3 point mooring on the Broadkill river that could easily accommodate a 40 footer in a blow that I would gladly extend to anyone that had an emergency. Who knows, might turn out to making a friend.
