Re: Mooring bouys

If you pick some random unmarked mooring, you risk:
1 - It is 30 years old and hanging by a thread
2 - It was designed to hold a 12 foot dinghy
3 - The owner may have a more direct way of dealing with trespassers than you might like
4 - If you LEAVE the boat to go ashore for any reason and the owner comes back, your boat might be hard to find
