Re: Mooring vs slip?

Our dock is in a protected hurricane hole. Other than a storm which brings 8 foot storm surge ( we have very little todal change unlike Maine) our bat is much safer tied up in 8 places vs t an anchor or mooring.

My question is not for the once in a ten year storm, but is for the normal storms of 30-40 knott winds which are common to have 5 or so a year. I can't beleive its safer to go anchor my boat out than leave it in a marina protected 360 degrees.

Fairly cruisers, does tht mean every storm you untie your boat and anchor t setting on it?
