Default Slip width question

Hey all. New guy here looking to buy bigger boat this winter. My slip has a narrow area of 9'6" in the middle due to a finger pier(10ft entering between pilings) and is 30 feet long. How wide a beam can I buy? It is NOT a floating dock either. Tide goes easily 6 feet up and down here in Manasquan. Thanks for any advice.

Boy that is tight.
I wouldn't go any more than an 8' beam being you need 3'+ of slack on the lines to compensate for 6' of tide.

I forgot to mention that the two outside pilings have slide poles, middle piling has a rubber protector and to the stern I have to cross tie or rig two more sliders if possible.

Small one called Glimmerglass Marina, at the Drawbridge in Manasquan NJ. Do you know it?

I know the Marina. We used to launch the race boat off their ramp in the early 90's. My friend keeps his boat there as well.
