Seriously, when shopping for a slip, get any one you can find!

I've got a lopsided slip, one foot on the starboard side, and 208 feet on port. I had to get it that big so I could manuever in with a full keel and a cross wind. A little overkill for a 15' 4" beam. One thing, I don't have to worry about is which side the dock steps are on or where the dock lines are. Let's see, it's called an "end-tie"

I like to get the largest slip I can manage to get, with the rise in tide and waves it gives you some room for adjustment. And saves your rub rail.

As I said before...
