Girl named Bill?

Remember when they used to name hurricanes after woman?
I was sailing in Cape Cod Bay w a friend who is a contractor...he remarked how a good hurricane would be helpful to builders due to the economy...I'm not certain he made it to shore yet but its ironic how Hurricane Bill developed. I am curious about the consenus here [the only consensus I would ever consider ] regarding haul out versus remaining on a mooring. I have a good mooring and understand sails should be removed, along w the anchor but my biggest concern is another boat breaking free and clobbering my boat. So my question is...what has been the acceptable practice of you 'old salts?' What else should be done if you leave it in the water?

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.
