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

I appreciate your consideration but...........my lake cabin is a short walk from our docks. Its a neighborhood with neighborhood docks. It would be hard to justify getting a slip in another dock. My place is down off of JJ, so Gage's Marina is close. If I was to get another slip, might as well be a 40' over there right?

Is the slip really 10' or are they just rounding up from 9'6" wide slip?

I was walking thru our marina this summer and there was a crusier that was in a slip where there was 1" on one side, with the other side up against the dock's pole pad. I had to walk back & forth to verify if I was seeing that right. I do not have a clue how they got it in or out without tearing something up.

Think of all the money you would save on bumbers and bowlines.

wellllll.........i measured it this last summer and it is as close to 10' as Ill get. I did run into another issue......and this one stinks even more. My dock roof/ceiling is too low to put any of these boats with arches up on a lift. I dont want to leave any boat, especially one thats within inches from the slip sides, in the water. That limits me to an older (02-03ish) sundancer with out an arch or a brand new chaparral 270 with a hinged arch. I did read on the searay owners site that a couple FL companies will cut off your new sundancers arch and install their own machined hinges. I guess its getting more popular as people keep bigger and bigger boats at their homes and can only go out at low tide..if at all b/c of over hwy passes leading to the bays.

This sucks.

I would not do it. Have had many boats in that size range and a few tight slips but not that tight. You will get it in, but it will slide in and slide out. On one side or the other. It would actually be easier with a larger boat having 6" with twins. If you back in the slip you'll have to pad the corners very well to avoid damage to the platform.
It will also be harder to tie off. You have very little slack to try and keep it tight so it does not rub somewhere.
You can pad it very well so you don't do damage.
Many negatives. The Sea Ray guys might be right on this one.

If it is a Sea Ray I would not get the colored hull option. Every scratch looks white and are very noticeable.

Good luck which ever way you go,
Greg
