IMHO the keel should be able to take it. At least part of the boat is still floating and taking some of the load off. One worry might be having the rail lodge underneath the dock, so ample "fender-age" is suggested. Any problems like this with those Euro situations?

What I''d be concerned about (besides being caught under the dock) is wakes from other boats bouncing my boat off the bottom at every single low tide. (or near low tide). If this were the case, It would drive me crazy and I can''t imagine this being any good for the boat.
I''d also be concerned about gell coat being chipped off the keel exposing the lamiate to water intrusion.
When I bought my currant boat, I could have also taken the mooring with the deal but the seller said that during a moon low lower tide the keel would sometimes touch the bottom. I did not keep the spot and moored her where she would not touch the bottom ever.
Respectfully, it''s my recomendation that you choose a mooring or dock where the keel won''t touch the bottom. Boat owners in other areas and nations may not have a choice,do you?
good luck,

Dennis

Get some stout lifting straps and support your boat from underneath when in the slip. You won''t need any type of lifting device since the tide fall will allow the boat to settle onto the supports. Make sure your dock can take the weight before doing this.

You could pick up something called a ''trash'' pump, connect a hose to the outlet, sit it on the bottom right where the keel bumps and dredge a big hole.

Trash pumps are good at pumping sand and dirt. If the bottom has big rocks this wouldn''t work.

Your boat isn''t a centerboarder, is it?
