Why don't I see small craft moored overnight off the beach of Seward? Usually, whenever I visit a port town, the bays are speckled with craft moored overnight and the tenants use dingys to travel to and from the beach. When I used to set-net commercially, this is also how we moored our boats. We moored them off of the beach 100yrds or so and used a little dingy to retrieve them in the morning. If the weather was bad we would have a bit of bailing to do in the morning and if the weather was forecasted to be really bad we would moor the skiffs up a nearby river away from giant waves.
I'm curious as to why I don't see small craft moored in the bay from all of the weekend-warrior fishermen? Is the bottom not conducive to a proper anchor? Is the weather too unpredictable in Resurrection and the risk is too high for large waves? I have an inflatable SUP board that would be perfect for going to and from the beach. Then I wouldn't have to launch my boat each day for the weekend or worry about securing a transient spot in the harbor.
Thanks in advance for replies!
