Singlehanding to and from the dock
All these suggestions are needed when going in and out of a slip...which I use to have...but if you singlehand as I do on my Apache 37 sloop with hank on sails, you cannot beat the simplicity (and pleasure) of being on a mooring.
Sail on, sail off. When on the mooring, the boat is head to wind and you can lower all sails at a leisurely pace. Even if the cost were equivalent, I would not go back to a slip.
