1.5 ft tide here, 14ft beam in a 18 ft slip. Works out perfectly - but I'm on the end of the pier and can 'pull through' - no backing on entry or exit. 14ft width on your 9ft beam should be plenty - cross your docking lines if you want more play for the tide (right side piling to left side cleat etc..) gives more length to the line and still keeps it off the piling.
