    I’ve always said “parked” for a marina as it doesn’t feel like
    mooring.

    But I have little excuse for my habit of calling the cockpit “upstairs”, the galley “kitchen” and cabins “bedrooms”.

    In the US...

    Docked is a marina or wharf situation. You can further describe it as a slip, bulkhead, or (rarely) med moor. Sometimes just "tied-up."

    Mooring describes a fixed mooring point.

    Anchored mean anchored using your own ground tackle.

    I am happy to find myself in complete agreement with Sir Tom.

    Now there's a surprise! The wordy wordsmith and garrulous gaffer skipper, never far from a bottle of Boat Show Beaujolais, seems to have been enobled - when no-one was watching.
    What have I missed?

    As for being in complete agreement - er, me, too! He's bigger than mysulf by quite a margin....
