We love being out on a mooring but for permanent liveaboard when you have to go to work it's a bit of a pain.

If our new boat comes through we plan on moving aboard if and when we dispose of our main business and just do a bit of consulting were we don't need to keep regular office hours. Even then we are seriously thinking of moving from mooring to berth cos it's simply more convenient.

Hopefully we'll even ditch the consultancy and just go cruising, then we will certainly spend most of our time anchored, maybe berthing if we are visiting a town where we'd want to spend days exploring.

Nonetheless, if the mooring is in a quietish bay , its our preferred option. Even in a relatively crowded port it's nice having that space around you, particularly if you are relatively antisocial.
