    We stayed on a shared mooringball in Vero beach about 3 weeks ago and although had planned to stay for 2 days left after one night because of voracious no seeums ! Unfortunately the people moored alongside us said bugs were not a problem so we did not use nets or take precautions until too late ending up with up to 50 bites each. I must add that we have stayed before in a more breezy location and not had a problem.

    We just spent 5 days in Vero Beach mooring field. Our original plan was for two days, but Vero Beach was just wonderful and we stayed 3 extra days. The staff was friendly and helpful and the long term residents were delightful. There is a bus that runs in front of the Marina.
    We did lock our dinghy when we were gone for the day, but we do that where ever we go.
    The Vero Beach Yacht Club and US Power Squadron are located next door to the Marina. The Power Squadron was having a party and the guys yelled to our boat to “come on over!”

    We have been in Vero’s mooring field several times. It is a well protected harbor. When we have are dingy in the water we always have two lines secured to it at night and have never had a problem. At vero they have a dingy dock to go into and tie up for the day. We do have a padlock on our motor at all times to deter the less determined individuals. But in eight years of traveling and 24k nm we have never had an issue.
