Southern New England Mooring Permits

Does anyone know if there are any towns (preferably in RI) that currently don't have waiting lists for a mooring?
I have a 23' O'day tempest, but want a Cape Dory 25 or maybe a typhoon (draft under 4' on all)
Any info would be awesome!
thanks,
kevin

Most, if not all, communities along RI's coast, especially on Narragansett Bay, have very long waiting lists - Newport for instance is well over 10 years.

We have always had a marina slip, but wanted a mooring for doing overnighting in Potter Cove, on Prudence Island. We're Portsmouth residents, so have a 1:5 advantage over non-residents - (5 residents have priority to 1 non-resident). Our application was filed with the Portsmouth Harbormaster in 1999 - still waiting for the certificate.

I was considering places up towards providence (away from newport!!)
in the fall someone had their mooring listed on craigslist and although the location was not included the seller claimed the particular field did not have a waiting list, but I can't remember where it was...

Gclayton is a bit confused. Hadley Harbor is in the township of Marion, Massachusetts. Hadley, Massachusetts doesn't have a wait list for moorings since it doesn't have a harbor, and isn't even on the ocean, being a land-locked town just a bit west of the Quabbin resevoir.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I don't think any town in Massachusetts has a residency restriction - isn't there a state law? I'm on the list in Marion and got removed, along with a bunch of other non-residents, and then got re-added when somebody complained that the removal was illegal.

I grew up in Marion - the harbors without waiting lists, don't have waiting lists because they're shallow and don't have any place for you to leave a dinghy. But I could be misremembering, too.

I moor my boat in New Bedford Harbor behind Palmer Island and the hurricane barrier. Bayline Marine had many moorings available last season at a reasonable cost. Nice folks to work with. I lease a spot from the city but I don't know if they have any left as Bayline gobbled them up four years ago when they opened the field. It is shallow for the most part but can accomodate a 5' draft, Bayline can be contacted at 508-994-2944
