They use a system of moorings on the Kona coast. Each one is installed and owned by a particular dive boat. All boats are free to tie up until the owner shows up, then that boat takes over after all divers are back onboard the other boat. I'm not sure that would work at Catalina. There is so much boat traffic that I can picture arguments developing over right to use, plus I'm sure having to deal with the California Coastal Commision, Channel Islands Park Service and Catalina Conservancy would involve too much red tape to make it a reality. Maybe the local boat owners should get together with the San Diego Oceans Campaign. I believe, but not 100% sure, that they installed the buoys on the Yukon. That seems to have worked out very well.
