Re: Dock vs. mooring

We have a slip this year, and the possibility of a mooring next. We like the slip right now as we have a 1 year old and it makes getting all the kid stuff back and forth. After a year or two, I think we would like the mooring as well.

Our marina is very quiet as it is mostly for folks that keep a boat there to get to a remote cabin so they don't hang out at the marina. But, even though they allow it, we never stay the night at the slip. We always head out, find an empty cove and anchor for the night.

I can see many pros and cons to both depending on the situation.
