Our girl lives on a mooring not in a marina berth and we moved last year from a busy part of the harbour that was closer to home to a quieter spot albeit further away. We now find that even in dirty weather we are more likely to go down and spend the weekend on board at the mooring without the traffic charging by.

Fast and I were playing games earlier on cos he well kows our new boat is exceptionally comfortable compared to our moderately comfortable old girl and that is why we are spending even more time on board The ability to completely enclose the cockpit makes all the difference. It is somewhat akin to having a pilot house or deck saloon without the disadvantages of the house over heating in our hot summers.

We also keep a set of lightweight wet weather gear for the times it is raining when we row out to mooring. It really does require a lot of rain to keep us at home these days.
