if the marina is full w/waiting list you are kinda at their mercy. if not, and you are nice to them, they may be willing to make some accomodations. as far as the lift goes, if a bigger boat gets wrecked the ins. claim would be bigger (so premiums would go up more) than a small boat getting wrecked, so it stands to reason that the bigger boat absorbs more of the 'risk factor.'
longer slip=more maintainence...painting, renailing, more styrofoam, more pilings etc which needs to be paid for. as far as the loa vs slip length... do you have demised elec? or is it 'included,' if included the assumption would be that the bigger the boat the more the draw?
i dunno, my points of consideration all amount to one thing, a marina is a biz and as such wants to make money. if you dont like it where you are, find another, make a deal with them, or suck it up...
a non-confrontational attitude and friendly demeanor may go a long way to encourage 'special dispensation'
not a marina owner/prefer a flat tax/no special interest/etc etc etc
