A strong mooring is a fine storage
/ parking solution. What you need to consider is that it is strong, has the proper size chain, shackles, and rode
for your boat and it's anchoring
behavior (some sail around at anchor
a bit more than others) and this include adaquate scope
for the depth
and tide range.
You'll want to have a second mooring line which serves as a back up if the first one fails (chafes). And this raises the issue of chafe. Most boats which "go free" from their mooring is the result of chafe. So you will want chafe gear
at chocks and a fair lead... no rubbing against the anchor
or bobstay. Another alternative is to use a bow eye blow the deck
level with a strong snap hook (Wichard?) and a security
loop to a blow cleat. Chafe is the enemy of the sailor and if you are not around to fight it, you better have chafe protection.
Don't forget to add a "pick up" buoy which has a "mast/stick" attached to your mooring painter so that you can reach it from the bow.
Then you need a dink and a place to keep it so that you can come and go to shore and to get provisions (or walk the dog...)
You want adaquate swinging room and no vessels moored or anchoring
in your swinging room.
And the anchorage iteself should be protected from open sea so that it is comfortable to "live on"... so a protected cove is ideal.
Then you need to maintain the mooring gear
regularly and you are safe as can be. You will lie to wind
(usually) so it is cooler than a slip, and you will have more privacy out there.
