Actually, you could go 10' 5" but you'd have some problems with rubbing the paint

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.

You could go 10' 0" if you go fast enough!

IIRC, the Panama Canal is 105ft. wide, and the Missouri is 103ft. wide. So, if you scale your boat's length to the Missouri's length (don't know that number OTTOMH) and then calculate the corresponding lateral tolerance, it could be a fair basis of comparison.

Hope this has been helpful.

[After supper on a Saturday night may not be the best time to ask a technical question.]

I'd want at least a foot clearance on either side of the boat, so I'd say that you'd want a slip that is at least 12.5 feet wide.

You guys!!! I would want a slip 12 feet for that boat. I like a wide slip so that there is lots of leeway for tidal range or when the water all gets blown out of the marina.

SailinJay and Pigslo are ruining all of our fun. You probably do want at least a foot of clearance on either side. It depends on whether your slip has finger piers on both sides or on one side with and another boat on the other.

And don't forget the clearance under the boat. If the slip is not deep enough you will have to have the big truck come in and fill it with water!
