  There are plenty of rules around here, but I believe it is state-specific. Does Alaska have a state agency that is involved with marine safety or regulations? If so, I'd start there.

pirate moorings are the best. My understanding is that it is not even state by state... that the harbor master ultimately is in charge.

That said, I think there are restrictions based on using correct tackle down below. For example, we had to have a mushroom anchor of a certain size, base on the size of our boat. Those might be statewide.
best,

It might be better to ask forgiveness than permission.  That philosophy has stood my son well for years.

I was thinking the same thing  :D  You aren't going to be in shipping lanes, and I've seen moorings off the coast around Soldotna.

It is Alaska after all :D

That is pretty much what I was thinking.
