Yeah, I guess I speak from the perspective of a lake where we don't have storm surge.

On the east coast we never had problems in slips with any of my dad's boats on Long island Sound. People talk about dock damage but if you tie your boat up properly with good lines that should really never happen.

I still vote, 100% dock/slip.
