This is true. The boat end would see more movement due to the boat's inherent instability compared to the dock. Use Dieelctric grease to keep the contacts clean of corrosion and flowing as much power as they can and secure the cable so it does not move about and you should be ok.

It might also be a good idea to disconnect and check everytime you leave the dock
