But, as much as I hate to bring up Florida anchoring laws in any context, I wonder what the policy is or will be for mooring fields during hurricanes. From what I've heard and seen about how many were installed, I wouldn't be sure a lot of them would be capable of holding a good sized boat in a real blow.

It will be interesting to see what happens the first time with those.
I would need to check other mooring fields, but Boot Key was my first thought. They have a plan - http://www.ci.marathon.fl.us/downloa...ad.php?id=3309


Same with St. Augustine - http://www.staugustinegovernment.com...ePlan09.14.pdf

From St. Augustine's web site. I think this would give me pause.

"City moorings are not rated for strong storms or hurricanes because of an array of stress factors. Accordingly, the City can not ensure that the moorings will hold in such conditions."

Re: Harbor rules: Remove boat for hurricane?

Yes, me too. I've been on a mooring there during some good blows. It gets pretty bouncy in 30-35 knots. A pretty good fetch. Boot Key is much better.

Re: Harbor rules: Remove boat for hurricane?

I was told by bobbies mega yard st martin that they require boats which are hauled during hurricane season to have the mast removed. This requires a crane and a rigger: 2K to remove + 2K to re-install.
