Personally, I'd prefer a slip of about 14' for a boat with a 10.5 foot beam. I have lived aboard for over 20 years now, and with slack allowed for tides and normal motion, plus appropriate tension and lines for wakes and weather, if you don't have at least a foot and a half on either side of your boat, you'll find your gelcoat or hull paint rubbed to crap by fenders. My boat is 12.5 in the beam and weighs about 12 ton and I like to keep her two foot off the nasties (pilings and docks) for general practice. Even then, with storm lines on, I sometimes watch her surge to within six inches. That's close enough. An ounce of caution is worth a half days touch-up.

Cam cheated and went back and edited the post where he mispelled Giulietta... He had dropped the second "i".

BTW, I understand Dame Ellen would like a word with you regarding what does and doesn't qualify as a boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Tell her that Vasco da Gama, Diogo Cão, Pedro Alvares Cabral and Gonçalves Zarco are waiting for her. As well as a few Volvo Racers. You know, boat people!!!

Hawkeye -- Wow, finally a post that's on topic!!!! Who'd a thunk it on here? Yes, more room is better than less up to a point, especially if tides and currents are involved. A 14 foot wide slip would be about right for a boat with 10.5 ft of beam. The original poster didn't say where he is located, but here in Chesapeake country with the large number of older marinas, slip width is becoming a problem. The modern, wide-ass sterns, and the wide beam that begats them, are creating havoc in some marinas that were built when beams were much more moderate. There's a Beneteau 393 in the slip next to me and they have mere inches on either side with lots of difficulty protecting the boat during adverse weather.

SailorMitch,

How things looking down at the marina? I haven't had time get down lately. I know which Benet 39 your talking about, its like threading a needle. I was there during the Tropical Storm this past year, the owner was very concerned his boat was going to get pile drived. Are your rates going up too...? I may have to look for another marina?

Giulietta, I'm glad you included that sheep for good measure. I guess a choir boy thrown into the mix would cross the line. You guys are really entertaining! I enjoy reading these forums.

Hey Chef,

There actually are 2 Bene 393's and one Bene 373 on the outside slips where I am (B pier I think). Yesterday I was down there and the wind was howling and the water was very low but everything seemed OK on those big boats. I haven't heard anything about a rate increase but nothing surprises me anymore. I have asked to move to an inner slip that's cheaper next year, as long as I can still get in and out by myself. I might end up on the bulkhead down by the travel lift.

Tell mw which boat is yours and I'll check it out for you next time I'm down there. Since I am in the water for the winter I go down as often as I can.
