Re: Dock vs. mooring

I have had both. The mooring REALLY depends on where it is. Over in the Severn I had a mooring in a very sheltered spot and a slip for my dinghy. I could tie up temporarily to load and unload or get water. Do NOT underestimate water. It can be a major pain to have no easy access to fresh water.
If you do don't have a good spot to keep a dinghy, a good spot to park, and a dock for loading and unloading being on a mooring can be a large PITA.
On the plus side the boat rides easy into the wind, sleeping is better, and hurricane prep is taking the canvas down.
