Think about a used Ranger 29 too, better performance under sail than the Catalina and construction a little more solid.

Mooring buoy approach is much simpler than a slip, since there's no such thing as a 'crosswind' and you don't have to sweat prop-walk in reverse. Just head into the wind, pick up the pennant (which can have a floating antenna on the end for this purpose, make fast, and drift or back downwind a little. Piece of cake under power, and almost as easy under sail--douse the jib before you head up, then drop the main once the pennant has a little strain on it.
