Would have to agree Brian and Cindy at Conch do a good job and the price is right. They have remained in business for quite a long time. A lot of other companies have come and gone in that time. One of the good things with them is you can start any day of the week and get first night sleep aboard so you don't have to pay for the first day. Invariably, you arrive late in the day so sleeping aboard the first night is great. As far as the second tier companies go, they're the best. I tried North South a couple of times and was disappointed both times. As for mooring balls you've got another good point. Those balls have crept into a lot of anchorages over the years. They serve a purpose, I guess, for those that don't have a lot of anchoring experience. The funniest thing is to see boats tearing into an anchorage at 3 pm and fighting over the last ball.
