Talk about hitting the mark I was in a slip a few years ago with enough room to single hand the hard part was the boats across from me had bowsprits sticking into the channel about four feet. Had to use the pilings to warp around just to get in an out. once inside the slip the heavy sweating stoped. went to great oak landing once they let me use a slip an you could get in blindfolded must have been 18 feet wide. go for the wide and longer one and you won''t have to regret it.
