1.5 ft tide here, 14ft beam in a 18 ft slip. Works out perfectly - but I'm on the end of the pier and can 'pull through' - no backing on entry or exit. 14ft width on your 9ft beam should be plenty - cross your docking lines if you want more play for the tide (right side piling to left side cleat etc..) gives more length to the line and still keeps it off the piling.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
I'm glad I do not have to deal with pilings, escept at the end of the finger pier! With max 12-14' tides, trying to figure out the correct length lines etc would NOT be fun. Kinda nice to just reasonably tighten the lines to cleats on finger pier, and boat goes up and down with the tide and pier!

If tied to a piling, I would think wider the better if you have much tide change.

12 feet would be plenty. Again, the tidal aspect might affect this, as I suspect if you are moored to pilings, there has to be a method to deal with going up and down!

Thanks for helping me put things into perspective... lots of good info in the responses. I think i will leave it the way it is. I should clarify about the tides though. It's not a typical high and low tide (Lunar.) It's the wind (especially from the NE) that pushes the water in and out so the average range is between 1-3 feet usually no more than 2' though. If a storm comes through then i'll move it to the mooring.

Here are a couple pictures... although not the best since i'm working with what i've got here at the moment.





And... the drawing i'm faxing to the people doing the work:

Even if you're on a non-floating dock, 14' should be plenty of room for a boat only 9.1' wide... I'd also highly recommend using a fender board to help the fenders keep the boat off the dock and pilings.

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.
