Re: Mooring bouys
I'm with Faster, its just not right to take/use someone's property. However, most people I know would do it. Personally, I would sooner drop the hook in a cove occupied by nothing but a dozen empty private moorings, than squat on one. That's just me.
There are some exceptions. There is a private mooring field no the Isle of Shoals, where it is published that you may use one if empty, but with the understanding that a member may ask you to leave. That's fine.
I would also rather sleep over my 1/2" chain and anchor than wondering what some random gear might be below.
