Re: Slip or Mooring Can?

Were I 2 1/2 hours away I think I'd rest easier at home knowing I was in a slip. Around here there are probably more sailboats on moorings than in slips. But they also seem to be the boats coming in to the yard for repairs more frequently whenever a storm blows through. Even if you do everything right, someone else slips their mooring and plays bumper pool through the field. You can always head out and anchor for the weekend to find that secluded spot.

Also, since you're likely to be spending weekends, having shoreside showers? and Head? easily accessible means you would need to fill water tanks and pump out the holding tank less frequently.
