Re: Slip or Mooring Can?

Our modus operandi is to try and get out to boat Friday evening the head back Monday morning, if that fails then Saturday morning to Sunday evening.

Under either of those two scenarios I'd much prefer being on mooring if only for the peace and quiet plus ventilation. I guess though we are pretty damn lucky in that our mooring is quite close to shore in a fairly well protected field. There is never an instance where we'd need a motor to get in and/or out. If the weather is ordinary we will often spend entire weekend on the mooring. We also have access to two public wharves for picking up and dropping off plus we have our club's pontoon available.

Otoh ... when staying on board for extended periods or if we still needed to get dressd and head off to work then marina. No doubt whatsoever.
