Re: Mooring dance - Would you do this?

The question would seem to be who really has jurisdiction of the water where you are at or want to moor your boat. Look to the Florida debate which set a precident a few years back now(I think). while the city can have jurisdicition over a mooring field they do not outside of the field.
This is seems to be the city telling you where you can anchor and not. Lookt the legal end of it and perhaps challenge the law or at least look up the law to see if it is a valid law.

Safira, I bought a boat to relax! The absolute last thing I plan to do here is take on the city/state apparatchik. One of the requirements of this exercise is to stay as far away as I can from state bureaucrats, lawyers or - most of all - politicians (no offence intended to all those who earn their keep in these fine careers).

Anyway, we think we may have solved this one (by avoiding it...) - update later.

Re: Mooring dance - Would you do this?

Graham, if your friend simply allows you to use "his" mooring, as a guest, is that a problem? Not lease it, but guest. You really need to find out the specifics of the laws as to what is allowed on the mooring, sometimes it is just that simple.
Of course that might leave him liable for some kind of mooring failure, but there's insurance for that and if you pay his costs for that, that's also simple.
If the laws only allow "his" boat on "his" mooring then your best solution is probably to register a limited liability corporation (LLC) so that he's a part owner and can moor his boat, but there are limits on his liability. And again, you'd be picking up the insurance anyway.
Shouldn't be so hard, if you have the specific laws to look at. And setting up an LLC isn't terribly expensive in most states these days, even with legal help.

State of NH & the Port Authority.

Re: Mooring dance - Would you do this? FIXED!

OK, we have resolved this one.

We have booked a slip at the Robinhood Marine Center near Georgetown Maine. It is a bit of a drive but the location is superb and first impressions of the place and the management have been really good. We actually think the increased community of a slip in a marina compared with a mooring ball in the river is worth a lot, particularly for newbe's. We have a lot to learn........

Here is a view of the location.



Thanks for all the great advice. This community has made us feel a lot more comfortable taking off on this adventure.

Looks like a great facility and a good location.

In addition, it looks like lots of great and varried sailing and being in a slip has so many advantages over a mooring it makes the 2 hour drive well worth it. Have a great summer.
