About the positions: During the summer months, Fishers Island has many summer residents and visiting groups who love to use West Harbor as a summer retreat. The Fishers Island Harbor Committee has jurisdiction over these waters and is responsible for its careful and safe use. The moorings and Bay Patrol folks have for many years kept West Harbor a safe and clean harbor for all to use.

Pirates Cove Marine installs the annual sticker on all mooring in West Harbor. The stickers indicate the owner has paid the 2019 yearly fee and the gear and tackle has been inspected and is approved for use.

The Bay Patrol start time is early June based on weather and traffic in the harbor. The last days are usually the end of September.

Weekends and holidays are usually the heaviest. Some traffic during the summer comes in just before dark and tries to field an open mooring.
