md7a is on a distinguished road
We had a similar problem with our Intrepid 9M, and when we tried the spring-line approach we kept bumping the neighboring boat. We were fortunate that our neighbor's boat walked the opposite direction, so he was happy to switch slips. Lesson learned: slip assignments can change, and there's a better than 50% chance that somebody else in the marina has the same problem in reverse.
