Location in the marina and it's design can make a big difference. Where I live aboard in Victoria my bow faces the prevailing wind when it blows up. But the small marina 100 yards away has all the slips facing a direction 90 degrees different from most of the slips where I am. Even in a very slight wake the boats at the other marina all rock from side to side while we don't notice. The other night we had winds in the harbor of over 30k for most of the night. We could hear it but the motion was not an issue.
