From a purely practical perspective, the 1st come 1st serve approach would defeat the very purpose of mooring to begin with. The Yukon is 366' long and has several moorings attached to it. The pinnacle at Farnsworth that most dive boats try to anchor over is at approx 65' and is relatively small. Meaning that if the boat can't anchor on the pinnacle, the next pinnacle is in the 100' range. Accordingly, let's assume a small private boat is the 1st come, as they would innevitably be given the distance it takes the commercial vessils to travel, what good would that mooring do if the only boat(s) that take up the best spot would be the private vessils that would always get there first?
