Re: Mooring vs slip?

Usually wherever you are you can tie up for a few hours during the day, at a gas dock or marina dock, whatever to fill water, scrub the boat, do laundry. I like to row so no engine hassles. On a mooring the boat is always in line with the breeze so there is always a nice breeze through the boat, and less bugs usually...both big advantages. And yeah, sitting in the cockpit having dinner or a pop is much more pleasant moored. I moor at 79th st in NYC when there. A tough spot for the elements (current, wake, tide, traffic) but ashore you are in the heart of Manhattan...
