Re: Creating a Mooring in Plam Beach/Lake Worth Inlet
Welcome to Sailnet!
No need to place anymore junk on the bottom....just tie up to one of the old cars, boats, motors or concrete creations that are already there!
Honestly, I have posed that exact question to the County and Riviera Beach Marina (now owned by Loggerhead) and no one seems to have a legitimate answer. A boat buddy of mine recently created his own "biodegradable" mooring (on the South side of Blue Heron bridge) out of several old anchors and no one has said boo yet after 6 months. Just don't place it too close to the channel or the swim zone at the park. Also, if you choose the South side of the bridge, please do not place it too close to the marinas as traffic gets pretty tight on the weekends and maneuvering can get a bit dicey with too many boats at anchor just outside the marinas.
Please note, there are several open (free) moorings just North of the Park also.
