Re: Dock vs. mooring

My $.02.

I have slept on my boat both tied up to a dock and on the mooring.
Hands down sleeping on the boat at the mooring the motion is more comfortable and it is quieter. Floating docks tend to make a fair amount of noise if there are any waves or tides.

A mooring also usually costs 1/3 or less of what a slip at a marina does.
