In my case, I got my boat squared away the way that I wanted it, and I now appreciate the peace and calm of summers on the mooring.
For sure a dock tie is handy for many projects. But not all. You may be able to use a town dock. For example in NPT it's free and there's water and power. When I had work done on my refer the mechanic asked I bring the boat to a dock... because had had a lot of tools etc.

Almost all projects can be done on board with the right tools and an inverter for power and having all parts etc. on board before you start.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
