Would you put a 9'6" wide boat in a 10' slip?

When it comes to Cruisers , Beam is good on a boat but bad on a woman .

I plan to upgrade lifts to accomodate it so it shouldnt ever be resting in the water in the slip. You are correct.....its not a good idea, but its all I have to work with if im to get a cruiser. Not many go-fasts with gen, AC, stand up headroom, and the ability to not stick too much past 30 ft.

Ran into the same issue. 10' x 28' slip w/10k backin lift. Bought a 2870 Cruiser Inc. because it has a narrower beam then most cruisers. twin 350's with volvo drives. actually does pretty good on gas and runs 46 mph

They dont make that boat anymore? Looks like the smallest cruisers is the 300 @ 10' wide.

Had a 31' Silverton. Beam was 10' 6" . Slipped it for a year in a slip where the inside of the poles was about 3" short of that. Due to the placement of the pilings, we'd squeeze the bow through the outer ones (about 10" pilings) and the boat would fit fine. It took a few experiments to get the lines right. Sat with the boat through the tide. We got it to work. The wide part sat between the front and back pilings. 1' on each side at the transom. Heck, if someone cut our lines, I bet it wouldn't get be able to drift out of the slip.
We weathered a storm where the waves were 2 1/2 to 3' high and came through it ok.
It wasn't the ideal situation, but we got lucky with the shape of the boat v the distance of the pilings. We found a wider slip next season, but could have made it work for a few more years if we couldn't find a bigger slip like we did.

chit.....was going to say that your boat looks to be 9'6" wide...and your doing what Im in question about. Table rock has the most WORTHLESS private boat slips in the country.
