Slip preference?

I finally received the contract for the marina that I would like to keep my boat in this year. My plan is to spend this year on a slip (so that the "admiral" will get comfortable), and next year on a mooring.

The yard manager has offered me the end of the T. He has also said that if I want it, I could get a slip closer to the bulkhead...

I'm curious as to what you would take and why.

As I see it the T has advantages;
  • Easier to land
  • Easier to leave
  • Deeper water (I draw 5' 7")
  • Privacy?

and disadvantages;
  • Less protection from fetch during storms
  • Higher likelyhood of bird droppings
  • More wake action
  • Longer walk to carry stuff to and from the boat
