I have been searching online and can’t find any info, rules, regs etc… on this subject.
Does anyone know anything about establishing a mooring just anywhere along the Alaska coast (or even elswhere)? I am thinking about establishing a mooring off the beach at Anchor Point out in front of our cabin (sorry it’s not a cabin it’s a cottage so I am told  Smiley ) The idea is to drop about a 30 gallon drum of concrete with line and buoy out past the lowest low tide line. Then of course go out with a raft to the boat leave the raft then come back tie off the boat and take the raft in.. you know the drill.

I have just not found any kind of info on rules about this sort of thing.

  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.

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

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

It is Alaska after all Cheesy

That is pretty much what I was thinking.
