Mooring Costs in Boston area

Hi -I'm thinking of joining a yacht club in Boston Harbor (Winthrop) and am learning about the fees associated with placing a mooring (Winthrop has a town fee of $225 it appears) but don't know how much a mooring installation costs. Anyone know? And know who to call to put one in? I've heard the name Houghton a few times but would like to get a ballpark estimate on the actual cost of installing the mooring.
thanks

FYI,

Houghton Marine Service Inc - SERVING WINTHROP HARBOR
I'd look hard for an alternative.

Figure about $1500

If you buy mooring tackle and have it dropped/installed in the harbor. You can't do it yourself, you need to go through an approved mooring service for your harbor (at least in Marblehead waters you do). I think my tackle was $1100 about 6 years ago for a 13000 lb displacement boat.

Be aware that you need to replace parts of your mooring tackle each year. Top chain every 2-3 years, bottom chain 5 to 10 years, float 5 years or so, etc. Life depends on location and water conditions. You also need to have your mooring serviced each year at roughly $150 to 300 year, by an approved service.

We have a mooring at Winthrop. You need to contact Houghton's Marine Services (?). The number is 617-5843-568 (cell) or781-631-9338. Be advised that the harbormaster may want extra for dingy tie up. We do love Winthrop. It is a quiet little basin--well-except for the jets landing at Logan. We like to watch them though, so we don't find it annoying.
