Re: Dock vs. mooring
I was part of that power boat crowd & although we spent our days fishing, in the evening we'd pound down those tall boys & fish off the docks for stripers.
I personally wouldn't tie up to a dock again. If you're looking for peace & quiet, nothing beats listening the sound of water lapping up against your hull when you're swinging on a mooring. All the hassles associated with a mooring are just part of the entry fee to enjoy that peace.
I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!
