I would grab that mooring. I wish we had something like it here in Melbourne, FL.

We moved her this weekend in the lovely labor day weather, hope yours was better a bit to the north, but from the looks of the radar there were few clear spots!

I really like the anchorage, the people are very cool, the facility is nice and we really like the additional privacy of being on the bouy. I do however hate our crappy plastic dinghy, gonna get an inflatable!

I have a good wifi signal from our spot, 3 of 5 bars. Anyhow if yer ever in the area come on by!

Scott,

Glad the morring worked out for you.

We spent the weekend on the boat but had southerly breezes when attempting to sail down to Sebastian on Saturday. Needless to say, we motored more than we sailed. The weather was also nasty up our way, and we came home in hours and hours of pourin down rain...but.... hey I was on my boat and that's not at all a bad thing.

Moorings with free dockside tie up for work and so forth would be the way to go. A decent solar or wind system can keep your batts topped up.

You can come and go when you want.. even come along side for major provisioning and work.

You lay to wind which is much more pleasant when you are on board but not underway.

You have privacy and don't have to smell other boat exhaust, listen to their chatter and music... or other annoying sounds and smells. I liken docks to apartment living in a slum and a mooring or anchor as being in a county home atop a mountain.

Moorings are safer too.. you don't have to deal with fenders ruining your hull... or the jerk next to you smashing you when he comes or goes.
