People whom think like you, are the reason for the numerous patrols by PPD. Moorings are private property, not yours for use if the owner is not on it. Not all moorings are the same and some have been damaged and even moved by boats that were too heavy for them or by multiple boats rafted off on one mooring.
There are maybe five guest moorings the DEM has in the cove, they are first come first serve.
