I appreciate having the longer lines for traveling. We visited Rockport last year and nearly had to overnight at the main dock. The tide was out and we must have been around 10 feet below. We ultimately chose a nearby anchorage but I was hustling for a bit looking for long lines. So I've got them now.
My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
