Hey guys, I'm looking for a little insight into this 1/3 of the cove rule for boat docks. I'm in the process of trying to extend our boat slip to accommodate two 28 foot boats. The slip is 21' deep and needs 9 feet at the end of each finger. We filed the paper work with GRDA and the girl I spoke with said no because we were essentially 9' over the 1/3 rule. Then I asked about the variance that could filed for directional bearing and she acted like she didn't know what I was talking about. I have a friend that filed for this about a year and a half ago and it was approved with no problem, what gives. Distance across cove was 300' and our dock is out 100'. Has anyone dealt with before?
