glad you saw that I was kidding around about electronics and such.

If you are comfortable with the security there is no reason not to leave her on a mooring. If you leave your sails rigged in a a yankee bag or on the boom you will want to be sure that they are really secure. If an unusually strong blow comes through when you aren't around you could lose your sails or damage your or other's boats if they get loose. I have used a yankee bag for a hanked on head sail before and only attached the halyard when it was time to sail, never left it attached just in case it decided to sail the boat on its own.
