Re: Dock vs. mooring

Hi all. For me, this was an interesting read. It is funny how one's mind gets set in a certain way. From my personal experience this is what got stuck into my mind:

Dock equals:
  • power boats
  • plugged in for TV, fridge, power stuff
  • very social, people sitting on the dock in their deck chairs "socializing"
  • (or) the elderly who have trouble getting in and out of a dingy
Mooring equals:
  • sailors
  • people who like to visit one-on-one with others
  • people who spend more time "out on the water"
Pretty silly. There were some really good reasons people chose docks that I had never thought of.

We have always had a mooring. Having read all these posts, maybe when I get old, buy a power boat and want TV I might get a slip on a dock (JUST KIDDING!!!!)

We mostly all do it differently for our own reasons.

To the original poster - in most cases you are not chained to either for life, so, you could try both.

This is our mooring.
