Cat Dockage ??

My wife an I are starting to look at purchasing our first cat. Presently we are trying to stay with one w/ a max beam of 16', so we can fit her in a normal slip at the local marina. Assumeing you don't live on the water, with the cat behind the house, what to you BIG cat owners do about dockage ???

Loking forward to your input,

Mark

We will be keeping Whistler II in the Palm Beach area.

Last est. I got was for a 35' slip, for $650, plus elec.

But we have been limiting ourselves to looking at max beams of 16' so we would fit into a slip.

Slips up my way are 15' wide. I'm 13' 8". Makes for rather exciting docking manuvers. If you're going to be in a tight slip, I would highly recommend a boat with twin engines. There's no way I could get into my slip if I didn't have twin diesels. What they don't tell you about cats is that broadside to the wind they are difficult to control because of their windage.
