I have a Jeanneau 41ds that draws 5'4". I am looking at a slip in the Florida panhandle with a depth of around 4' at low tide with a north wind. Slips are hard to find in the area and I would like advice about possible problems.
What is the bottom like, super soft mud or hard sand? Are the docks floating or fixed? If it's soft mud and a solid dock/pilings to lean against you're probably fine, but it's hard on bottom paint. A lot of people do this on the Chesapeake.
