As far as the Coast Guard knew, no one owns the moorings. I guess it is just a free for all.

Fishstick...the city marina used to collect rents on those moorings...If I recall correctly, they stopped because of the condition of the moorings and did not want to or did not have the funds to replace them. Someone local there should know the full story. Are they simply sitting there free now?

In any event, when they were actively rented they were fine for a night or two for transients or for keeping a boat on weekends. As I said earlier...they are quite exposed in a blow, the current and tidal forces are significant and it is a long way in to the docks in a dinghy if the weather kicks up. (BTW...where will you tie up your dinghy?)
It would not be my choice for a place to try to live aboard. Also...with limited tank storage on that hunter...you're going to have a lot of pump out trips and expenses...and with the coast guard a hundred yards away...I would think that you'd be subject to frequent inspection as a live aboard.
If I were trying to live at anchor in the Charleston area...I'd be looking for someplace up a creek...not in the main harbor.

I run from anything that had a non-refundable deposit. period.
