Re: Yikes! Mooring System Failure

(OP) Here in the Annapolis area, other than not obstructing channels or access, there is an odd lack of rules regarding mooring buoys. You can drop them wherever you like provided that you have access to them. There are no regulations or ordinances about inspections or standards. You're really on your own.

This is good advice. Thanks. Even though we don't have anything close to Maine conditions ... I'm going to upgrade mine to New England standards particularly with the swivel.
