Default Mooring for sale in Salem Harbor (Ma)

I'm moving my vessel to the South Shore and selling my current mooring in Salem Harbor for $1000.

The mooring consists of a 1500lb block, 1/2" bottom chain, 3/8" top chain, and mooring float. The mooring is good for a vessel up to 25'. (My vessel is 9000 lbs and the mooring kept her secure). I purchased the mooring brand new in 2004 and have personally inspected and serviced as necessary every year (I'm a diver and commercial captain). I replaced the top chain at the start of last season so you are all set to go for this season. However, the Harbor Master requires inspection every season so you will need to inspect or hire someone to inspect the system.

The location is ideal as it is close to the ramp/docks at Winter Island. Winter Island Park offers a small store for basic supplies and a dinghy storage program. For an annual fee you can store your dinghy in one of their racks and get a seasonal parking sticker. The location is also about 2 minutes from the end of the headway speed zone so you have a very short distance to travel before you can come up on the throttles. I have attached a Google Earth picture (mooring spot in blue).

Shoot me an email at captain@commercialcaptains.com if interested.

Matt,

Good luck with the sale. Why the move to the "other" shore?

Also, while I inspect my mooring every year and replace chain when needed, the Salem Harbormaster has never told me I was required to service it every year. Don't get me wrong, its the smartest thing you can do, but I'll bet its the exception rather than the rule.

Hi Doug,
I've had a mooring in Salem for the last 10 years (prior to purchasing mine I rented). Over this time I have moved to the South Shore and wanted to have the boat closer to home.

I recall reading in some of the mooring documentation that annual inspection was required. I suspect they don't enforce it though (unless your mooring lets go or something). You are required to list the date of the last inspection and by whom on the annual mooring permit form.

As you said, it's a good idea to keep on top of it. I sleep better at night when there is a storm blowing
