A smaller boat in a larger slip may actually need longer lines if you have to dock in a wide/long slip instead of one more appropriate to your boat. Also, lines too long are much less a problem than lines too short, especially if you have only one set. In my opinion, you need 6 lines, 2 bow, 2 stern, and 2 spring. Spring lines would want to be about 30 ft. minimum (assuming you have midship cleats, if not add another 5 ft.). 20 ft. minimum on bow and stern lines, but 25 ft. gives added insurance.
