I kept a boat many years ago at a slip that had that problem. It was sometimes inconvenient to arrive at the dock and not be able to get out, or not be able to get back, but I lived with it because the slip was free. I even bought a tide phase watch to time my arrivals and departures. Since then, I've had occasions where I needed to return to get out of a storm, or for other emergencies and I would hate to think of not being able to get back because of the tide fall. I certainly wouldn't pay for that type of headache.
