I spent a summer on the hook in Barnegate Light and the only complaints are the speedy fishing boats that run through the anchorage, the other is when a really large vessel would head to the marina it would kick up a large wake that would wake you up and toss you around a bit when the wind was just the wrong direction. i have a wind generator and a solar pannel and just motor to the dock to fill the water and pump out at the same time. I would rather be on a ball or the hook. I don't like the claustrophobic feeling of some marinas or hearing my neighbors TV.
oh yea my cat might run away as well and my wife would kill me then so its a safety thing
A long time ago, my mother said something about not being able to sleep at night worrying about me. I told her, "Don't be foolish, I don't skydive at night."
