you know that a mooring is different than anchoring. In all my searching I’ve yet to find a hard-fast rule on moorings as opposed to anchoring. As you say 7/1 IS considered to be ‘standard’. Most moorings I’ve seen seemed to be 1/7 if that… It has to do with the weight of the anchor but as I say, I haven’t found that spelled out on line yet…
Defied, Anchoring would be cheaper by an order of magnitude over dynamic control of any type due to cost of maintaining alone!
I was thinking about it, and you’re more than likely right, purchasing the items necessary, and yes, always maintaining will be a real bear.
As far as mooring, what would you moor to in that depth? If the cabling can be laid, and stabilize the platform properly, then go for it. I haven’t really thought about deep water steading, so allow me time to noodle that one. 0]
is determined by wheather you’re over the continental shelf or not. Most of those seem to average around a max depth of 1300 feet. Once beyond that the depth plunges to average around 13,000 with various trenches and holes going down to 29,000 feet. [check out the 'Position Control' thread]
