Hauling vs Mooring

Thanks CD... good advise. This is our first season with the new boat and we're a bit nervous. We are going through the trouble of getting a permit and installing a mooring but it may not happen before a storm heads our way thanks to red tape.

One thing i'm wondering about is hauling Vs. mooring. Assuming it's a big storm, which is the better choice? I would be worried that there would be too much surface area on the hard and that would increase the risk of the boat being topple over. Of course, we do have insurance. Thoughts on this?
