Well.....You'd lose that bet. As was pointed out by another member, the dock forbids rafting. Here is an quote from our local sailing rag as to why:
"Grant points out that the surge from ferries and commercial traffic is clearly the common-sense reasoning behind the dock's 'no rafting' rule, and suggests doubling up on docklines and adding spring lines, no matter how long you plan to stay. The 180-ft dock, open from 10 a.m.-10 p.m., has a three-hour limit and can accommodate boats up to 40 feet."
(Red highlight added by me)
