Re: Retirement

The point about moorings taking up anchorage space is true near popular landings. However, even in the BVI there are plenty of anchorages available, with essentially nothing ashore nearby and, therefore, not very popular.

When we get to our 6 mo per year Caribbean plan, 300 ft of chain is absolutely a requirement (200 ft of 1/2" now). There are several mooring fields in the BVI, for example, with 40 - 50 ft of protected water behind them where one can anchor. You just need the proper tackle. Bareboaters do not want to deal with 50 ft of depth.
