If there's a bar at the entrance, so the problem is getting in/out of the marina, that's no problem as long as you come and go at higher tides. If there's only 3' at low tide in your slip, that's a problem. Especially if that means your boat might rock back and put the rudder in the mud. That's easier to damage than the keel.
