Re: Slip or Mooring Can?

Having done both. My advise is as follows:
Take the slip first, get used to your boat and living aboard, while the
cost of ownership and daily life is lower on a ball, the investment required
to prepare the boat for mooring life is higher plus the inconvenance of minor items
can mount quickly. Grocery purchases require dinky rides, laundry and trash removal,
pumpouts, etc all require planing. Once you have spent time at the slip and can handle
the boat life, spend some time anchored for a few days. If you really like the solidtude
after being on the hook for a week or two, then move yourself and the boat over to a mooring ball.
