private moorings
anyone know what the hoops are that you have to jump through to get a private mooring installed. I know they exisist I am just wondering if anyone has done it in say the biloxi area or the texas coast? the last one I ran into that I knew was private was in Barnegate light, NJ

In some places you may need a permit like where I am all boats and moorings need matching permits so they can match the up if they break loose and to clear out abandoned moorings so look it up on your town website and other than than all you have to do is add the right size mooring and a sailboat =) cant think of any other things that may get in your way.

that is something to think about, i was just wondering i would rather be on a morring ball than a marina. But its a personal thing.

I am just the same its is much nicer to have your own space in your own little harbor instead of a big marina.

just not a fan of marina politics or soap operas

I agree. Ive applied for a mooring in staten Island and was told Im #16 on the list, but hopefully with our economy some ppl will be up on land this year. I figure if I spent the 4k that a slip in a marina would cost me and spent it on solar panels and a wind turbine I might be able to be on my way to self sufficiency. That has alot of appeal to me.:thewave:

In our area the harbor master and local mooring association control the rights. I would start with the harbor master.

I've not been able to find any mooring, or requlations for mooring in the California delta. I know of one couple who leased an island from BLM, but those deals are virtually non existant today. I found one small plot of land, and I do mean small (9K sq ft), for $150K, but then I'd have all the red tape for building a dock. That is if the coastal commision approved it.
If anyone knows of any resource for CA, I'd appreciate the information.

Here on LI we aren't allowed to build any new docks........only re do them

Depends upon where you live. We live in a remote area and have two moorings and a dock in front of our place.
