A mooring is always cheaper BUT not that cheep for short term stays ,up here it can be 2 bucks a foot per night
been thinking about this for some time. Build or buy minimal, around 30' or less and cruise the circle following the weather. In laws in Norfolk, so Chesapeake in summer, gulf in the winter. I'm not financially independent so I'd have to work to keep it going. Maybe 4 months in the Chesapeake working and cruising and working further south in the winters. I like the Idea of living on a hook, but as I understand the state of affairs , we're limited as to how long we can anchor in the U.S. So is it doable?
