Re: Slip or Mooring Can?

One cheapskates perspective...

I like keeping our boat on it's mooring. I also really like being able to pull into a slip to do commissioning, de-commissioning and repair work. Best of both worlds.

Comparing spending a night tied up at a dock to being on the mooring then the mooring offers more solitude but the dock offers shore side power, heads and showers etc.

Moorings are often 1/3 or less the cost of a slip.
