Larry and Letty,
Although not a lawyer, I've seen a lot of Judge Judy and in all those civil cases the law appears to require a contract in order for the plaintiff to prevail. Putting your boat on a mooring ball while you were away and then trying to charge you for it doesn't sound like there was an agreement between the two parties.
I would certainly ask them straight up what gives them the authority to bill me and if they can't cite some sort of statutory authority I'd let them know that I disagree about owing them money and they certainly have the right to prove it in court.
