Re: Slip or Mooring Can?
It can be extremely intimidating to handle a boat within a marina if boating a new pastime for you. Costly too, if you hit another boat or a dock. Sailing(motoring) from and to a ball is easier to master. It also allows you to learn how the boat handles in less stressful environment. It is much quieter on a ball and ventilation is always there since the boat always vanes into wind. There is no straight answer for the question. I guess moorings are for introverts and marinas are for extroverts
