Re: Yikes! Mooring System Failure
Unless these are all deadweight moorings this is actually poor form dictated by a town without not much of a clue about proper mooring protocol. Yes the chain can be inspected but the moorings are all "barely set" which creates even lots of potential for danger in storms.
Here in the north shore of Long Island (south side of the LI Sound), the towns regulate moorings. I own my mooring gear but need to purchase a mooring permit each year. The mooring can be placed in the spring and must be hauled by December. The upside is that the place that drops and hauls my mooring also inspects it and replaces components as required.
