Use some caution when choosing a mooring
in Dakity. Last year there were a few moorings in 5' of water
. We slept great, woke up and the wife released the mooring
. I waited and waited for the boat
to drift back and it never did. I then noticed that the boat
wasn't moving up, down or side to side at all. The tide had gone out leaving us on the bottom without even a bump to wake us up. Partial throttle in reverse with us both standing on the rail easily floated us off. About that time the guy next to us said that the reason the mooring we were on was empty was because it was so shallow. Gee thanks!! It was my own fault for not checking my depth
finder. I saw a mooring near other sailboats and wrongly assumed there was enough water
for a sailboat.
Most moorings looked to be in decent condition. It was troubling that so many had been pulled out of Culebrita. I wander what became of the presumably attached vessels. There are moorings just about every place one would want to anchor
. Watch your depth
finder and enjoy!!!
