And.. be careful about what the marina considers to be a proper slip size for your boat.

Some are very aggressive about charging for overhangs and/or forcing you into a larger size.

I was at Shilshole marina here in Seattle last weekend, inquiring about a slip for my Catalina 30 (29'11" LOA) The marina employee strongly suggested to me that it would be too small for their 30' slips and that I would need a 34' slip.

This is an uncommon attitude around here, and has caused much consternation in the sailing community.

Make sure you have a clear understanding of the marina rules, before you make a big mistake.
