Re: Mooring vs slip?

Mooring versus slip, the never ending debate. I spent this summer on mooring and learned that everytime I sailed there was something new I could do to make it easier the next time I came out. This went from the type of lines I tied off with to how to get there to location of the lines to styrofoam insulation on lines to keep them from wrapping around bottom of buoy. The only downfall I found was the buoy cable snapped at its anchor during a storm and resulted in my boat being blown intilo a cove and the adjoining seawall, luckily I left fenders on both sides of boat on and always raised keel when tied off. I have inquired about a slip for next year but moor than likely will be back on the buoy after the solitude while overnighting.
