    I guess I don’t understand why they put the balls in up river of the bridge. If you have a large sailboat and don’t trust your ability to anchor in less than 10' of water you can't get to the balls. If you have a smaller craft and can't anchor correctly then you've got bigger problems.

    My letter to the editor providing my opinion of the Punta Gorda, FL mooring field was published today (12/11/11)in the Charlotte Sun..

    Editor, Earlier this year, the city of Punta Gorda established a 32 ball mooring field on the Peace River, east of the Highway 41 Bridges, and fronting the Laishley Park Municipal Marina. The mooring field is restricted to boats that can clear the 45-foot vertical bridge height thus making it off limits to most sail boats. A mooring field located west of the bridges—where incidentally, most boats choose to anchor—would have attracted more consumers.
    Since opening, I’ve seen only one lone boat moored there and it didn’t stay long. The owner moved to a marina because he doesn’t trust the shallow water mooring ball in the event of a storm. This is another fine example of a tax dollar supported boondoggle.
