I have used an anchor system as a mooring following a practice used in a crowded anchorage in NY by the local harbor master. This is a versatile system very well tested. The idea was to have a strong reliable system use less room and have easy set up and serviceability. The system uses three Danforth anchors chain and a float with rode. The anchors are set at 60 degrees with about 60 foot of chain and linked to a central ring then another section of chain maybe 2X greatest tidal depth with a heavy road at approx. the greatest tidal depth hooked to the float. The end result is no mater where the boat is or turns a very secure very high holding power. The chain stays on bottom away from where it deteriorates faster and the chain and joining ring can be pulled up for inspection without heavy equipment.
