I've loved that area, surfed there in the 60's, I use to dive in the cove before the marina and was a slip resident there for a couple years (West basin B & C docks)and I'm kinda getting a weird vibe on this topic.
From what I under stood when we were there; nothing is set in stone yet, they have or will have 5 or 6 alternate slip layouts, right now there's 2400 slip with a average size of 29 ft, all the alt. are any where from a 30 slip increase to a 340 slip decrease and keeping the average slip size between 29-33', I also understood that the current slip holders would not be evicted, they may however have to deal with a temporary relocation at some point & time, I understood that when the time came, that when slips were vacated they simply would not be re-released.
Based on the conceptual drawings I've seen a lot of what you've said sounds exaggerated and some of what they propose will actually benefit most weekend boaters ie: enclosed boat storage, the surface boat storgage area ( which will be utilized but the boatyard ) As far as walking a 1000 ft with gear ??, most people load their gear before launching so I don't get that.
I understand I'm not 100% up to speed on this but, that marina and surrounding facilities are pushing 40yrs old, alot has changed in boating population and the surrounding community as you curtainly know and the current setup can need not meet demands on it.
Tell me were I'm wrong so I can better understand the issues now

Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't
