T head means you are tying up only one side of the boat to the bulkead vrs all four corners. I would rather have my boat tied at the corners, and spring lines "floating" in the slip. Easier for this to happen to adjust to daily tides.

Hard to imagine a boat which has gotten loose hitting me in my slip, hreas at the end of the T head more likely.

When wind direction is acrooss the beam at the T Head the boat is pinned to the T head with fenders/ boards compressed between the two.

My vote is for the slip
