    I do not know whether the verb "to berth" implies somehow getting the vessel beside another vessel or beside a pier, quay or jetty. And that is why I wonder whether it is possible, or not, "to berth" a vessel by means of only anchors in the middle of an anchorage without getting beside any other vessel, pier, quay or jetty.
