Mooring verces Dock

Looking for feed back about a mooring or a dock to keep a boat. I''m ready to purchase a boat ...my first boat. I already am finding that securing a location is not easy on the Long Island sound. I was told by one broker that I can get a mooring for about $10.00 per foot,plus the coast of having it installed, and then another $500.00 to keep a dingy at a public dock.

My concerns are is the boat just sitting out there bouncing off the other moored boats......and what about foul wheather...does the boat take alot of abuse swinging on a mooring.....I know that the creature comforts of shore water and power are not there but is the cost savings worth the inconvieance...
