Are you saying your slip is only 1 foot deep at the lowest tides?
That's not a boat slip- that's on the beach! If the bottom is soft mud and not rocks/coral you might be able to find a beachable boat, which won't be damaged sitting on the bottom. Even most small swing keel sailboats draw more than 1' with the keel retracted.
