Re: Slip or Mooring Can?

We're in a slip for the first time in 35 years. It's very different. Don't know if better or worse just different. Would approach it like buying a house. Important to know who your neighbors are and what the neighborhood is like. Sistership is coming back to our marina next year mostly because of the fellow occupants not because of the marina or its staff. Cruising is a no brainer. Definitely swing to an anchor or mooring. Living day to day ( even with solar and wind ) marina is nice. Used to single a lot on day sails. Haven't built up the courage to do that coming in and out of a slip. Got lousy knees and scared I won't be able to tie back up by myself.
