Re: Temporary "permanent" mooring on the cheap

Surely you gest about cement for an anchor
Cadence, tens of thousands of boats world wide are moored to cement mooring blocks... successfully. Not a "gest", but a viable type of permanent mooring.

And death/dismemberment to t hose who set these and then abandon them in place, for this is a vile thing to do.

Jim,

Setting a suitable hunk of cement would probably cost more than he paid for her. As I said, a nice boat but the one I had in days of yore was already out of production for the 28'er.

I am just afraid of another misguided dream that boating is cheap.

I'd rather have a mushroom anchor than a block of cement. It could be hauled and reused or sold after his 8 months. It isn't weight its suckun similar to walking in pluff mud JMHO.

You will have to excuse my spelling.

Roger

Re: Temporary "permanent" mooring on the cheap

My apologies to the screw anchor crowd. I hadn't considered federal waterways. I'm always wondering where I'm going to land my dink. If you could put one close to a legal landing place and if you could secure it so it wouldn't get stolen and if you didn't have local cops and all the other agencies that have guns and badges all over you. How did you deal with all of these issues?
