Re: Dock vs. mooring
We almost always anchor or use moorings when cruising, but have a slip at our marina. We prefer shore power, so we can keep our fridge stocked and batteries topped. Easy access is very helpful for provisioning and repairs. I've not heard of too many repair technicians willing to dinghy out to your mooring. When needed, they can come aboard at the slip, while I'm away. Marina keeps a key. Also much easier to keep the boat clean, top water off, use shore bathrooms, etc.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
