They do seem like they'd be great, but I've never had a slip at a place that had them. It would at least remove the worry about your boat being over the docks as mine has been several times at Stingray. I could tell by the tide marks on the pilings that the bottom of the keel had been about level with the dock after the storm in the video.I don't disagree with anything you've said and I do appreciate the advice. Just having a hard time trying to figure out where I might want to park the boat. The other half really likes the floating docks and that kinda of limits the choices. She thinks one of the dog's is going to take a walk off one the smaller finger piers.
Besides if the other half has expressed an opinion, the decision is made. lol
