I've spent 3 months here at Boot Key Harbor on a mooring. On the plus side, it's cheaper than dockage, and that's about it for pluses. At least here, you get a weekly pumpout and dinghy dock with your mooring. That means using the dinghy though, for everything you want to do. From showering at the marina, to shopping, to dining out. But you either have to take the boat in, or ferry jerry cans for water. I wouldn't want to do it if I didn't have alternatives to the engine for charging my batteries.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
