I would look at the north marina good an hard. Better protection, less traffic, and what another 10 mins to the bay? In the north marina a T head would be a good deal. I wouldn't want the T-head at number 12. The waves will come right in the inlet and pin your boat against the dock, plus all of the wakes.

Where is this at, latitude makes a big difference in how far you need to be from inlet.
What are the prevaling winds? I like to nose into the wind, worst is a crosswind blowing away from the finger pier.
How far a walk to the restrooms/laundry? This will be your biggest comfort factor.
How far a drive to the nearest pumpout/fuel? This comes in at a close second.
Power? the marina I'm at now does not meter, really cool in the summer when it is 100 outside. I think I easily burn the slip rate in power june to aug.
