Re: Mooring vs slip?

Most of my reasons were already covered Dave.
I'll add something else.
During storms I prefer to actually pick my anchorage, use my own ground tackle and use natural windbreaks to remain in the lee.
That being said my GYB mooring is very sheltered from all but the north.
During most storms boats at the Skipjack, Granary, Sassafras Harbor and GYB get hammered by waves if the winds are out of the west. They can't face into the weather either.
That huge storm that rolled across the NE Chessy on July 4th weekend saw lots of boats damaged at the docks.
