i reside on mooring in cali 24/7/365--when i am sail cruising i live on anchor--i prefer this way of living --is more peaceful and to me, safer than in marinas where anyone can come in and access my boat..i donot like that.....there are up to 30 kt winds in sandiego at times----and the fetch is 3-4 ft----so the storms and wind times are particular times to stay on voard in case of problems which can arise in such conditions...i enjoy the sail cruising life so being on a mooring is appropriate----make sure the lines are long weenough to not tug or jerk the boat --make sure it rides smoooth....prevent damage...
in gulf--anchor-i havent seen any mooring fields ...i saw one in ft myers, but is all.....gooodo luck
