I tried to live on Mooring in a Bay in NJ one summer and got beat up.
Hmm - can't imagine there was a whole heck of a lot of competition for a rubber ball floating in the harbour.... Who attacked you ??? Seagulls ??? Codfish ??

Has anyone else parked on a mooring and had good luck living for a summer season.
Uhmm ... lemme think ... nope ! I think there are some folks who have tied their boats to moorings and tried to live on the boats, but as far as the mooring itself goes ... are you sure it's legal ??? How do you do your "Number 2" ?????

I found the wind and weather just took its toll on my body and boat.
Yup - that happens. Not a lot you can do about it... Maybe if you got on the boat and found somewhere sheltered to come alongside rather than floating around in the middle of the shipping lanes.... (just a thought )
Maybe I need to eat more spinach!
Sure - whatever, eat something Maybe you can drink a liittle more too...

Good Luck !
