Here in Falmouth we have mandatory mooring inspections. No inspection, no mooring... Get kicked out of the mooring field for failure to comply and you go to the back of the waiting list. It could be a loooong wait... Moorings are a privileged not a guarantee so you need to comply with the local ordinance...

There are only four or five mooring companies "certified" by the town to do these inspections, which keeps the quality of the work consistent, and you MUST have an inspection report on file with the harbormaster to moor your boat..
