Contact the local harbor masters and ask what their requirements are. Maine Sail has a very good post on sizing chain and mooring connections that I'd recommend you read. Most moorings use undersized chain IMHO.

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.

That picture just lost you all your credibility. There is not nearly enough "stuff" on that cockpit for you to be a liveaboard. Where do you hang your stern anchor, cook hamburgers, or store your bicycle? Beautiful woodwork though...

He never said he's a liveaboard he said its on a dock in front of his "place" which is probably his house.

You're right. It's in front of my house.(during summer). I just came in from shoveling snow for the past two hours. No services out here.

I pretty well live aboard during the summer. Stern anchor is in lazerette, barbeque is in lazerette (I don't leave it on the rail...it's a sailboat). I don't ride a bicycle, too busy sailing and when I'm not sailing I'm drinking rum

If you get a mooring be sure to dive down and check or replace the shackles & you may want to toss the worn first link. The shackle pins should be wired or otherwise prevented from opening.
