Thanks, maybe I WILL take a shot - even if they say no, you can still anchor there. Part of the foreshore there was once zoned for marine business of some sort so maybe if they look at some old maps?

Re: quick question with regard to anchoring near port of everett, puget sound, wa

Looking at what is used for a lot of moorings - mushrooms & so forth, I'm curious what a REALLY BIG anchor would do in this situation.

I'm thinking of an anchor many times normal size. For example, the Bruce factory recommendation for a storm anchor for my boat was 20 Kilos - how would, say, a 50 Kilo anchor do for a long term moor in a quite protected cove?

I'm thinking of a situation where the chain to the anchor would be buoyed with a float when leaving and then picked up and reattached to the boat when returning. Swinging room isn't a problem since it's fairly shallow near the head of the bay. Storm winds pass across the mouth of the bay, not into it. Seas never get over a couple of feet.

The reason I'm curious about this possibility is because there is no marina moorage available anywhere near where I live. There IS however, a nice, quite protected cove 2 blocks away. . Dropping a conventional mooring there would almost certainly cause squawking and intervention from officialdom but anchoring there is perfectly legitimate. Also, a monster anchor is still a LOT cheaper than a mooring and it's easily removable when wanted.

Anybody have any relevant experience?

Popcorn anyone?


Stephen,

I don't know Puget Sound, but leaving a boat on an anchor is not the equivalent of leaving it on a mooring. For the sad ugly story of what happened to one person here, after asking for and getting advice against his plan, see this thread: Well my day really sucked.

Other people with more pertinent knowledge will be along shortly.....
