I can't really say about moorings. My impression around here is that mooring fields are where most boats go to die. For that reason, I think, it varies by municipality, but yes, most of the marinas only have slips. There are a lot of options between Cape Coral and Tampa Bay, you'll just have to do some leg work to find what you're looking for. There are also some less expensive marinas, but you get what you pay for...Thank you Phil! I’m currently in RI . . .plenty of moorings in New England . . . Thinking of moving down there . . .are moorings a rarer commodity? A lot of marinas seem to be slip only . . .
