Re: Mooring bouys
You are correct. "Summer moorings" are increasing. As the season gets busy the remaining spaces are coming under a proportionately increased amount of pressure as more transient boats show up. There are just more of us out there.
One of our rules of thumb is, "Sail to the Easterd after Memorial Day and to the Westerd after Labor Day."
Glad to learn things are not really that bleak West of Gloucester. Ha!
