Go between pilings.
1. Getting off a tee in an on-shore wind is not easier. Doable, but not easier.
2. Rubbing on fenders 24/7/365 is a minus.
3. Wakes get old.
4. Ice in the winter amplifies the above.
5. Docking in your home slip with pre-tied lines and fenders where you need them is easy.
As cat sailor that gets a lot of t-docks when cruising, I'm always glad to get home, where I can tie-up between pilings.
