The Marblehead harbormaster told Harbors and Waters Board members at their last meeting that the town needs a policy for the existing yacht brokerage moorings in the harbor.
Harbormaster Webb Russell said the moorings are in prime locations and he has heard that they are being abused. He has heard that moorings have been sold for the season and not used for the reason that they were created — as a brokerage place for yachts.
He said he would like to write a policy and give parties using the moorings a chance to abide by the policy.
In his report to the board he proposed that the moorings be moved to the B section of the harbor and that all vessels using the moorings for brokering yachts have signs indicating the brokerage.
Patch will report on the progress of the proposal when it comes before the board.2. Weather Watch:
