We did, in both Marathon FL and Westport Harbor, MA, for a few months at a time, while living on board full time. Loved it. When transient, we vastly prefer moorings to docks as well, so have spent several days at time on a ball all up and down the east coast, as well as the PNW on chartered boats, or Catalina, Morro Bay and Port San Luis in California on friends boats.

Very common in other parts of California though, especially south. The local boats are on moorings up in Point Arena too, though not for transient use unless you know the owner.
