I agree. The captains on crewed charters I have taken always said they personally would rather be on their own tackle. But being relatively new, I'm with you - I would feel a little better about being on a mooring. Maybe once I have all the sea miles these pros have I'll feel differently.
Go sailing now my brother,
It's later than you think.
