These practices are common in my area so there are few options.
The "boat show" one in Fort Lauderdale is longer.

A good reminder to all to read their leases carefully, whether for boat slips or apartments or houses or anything else. The problem is that in most cases they are very prejudicial and not negotiable.

Let`s hope you get a narrower neighbour. Sounds like he went where the Marina said. They should, and probably do, know better.
He who drafts the Agreement gets to benefit himself while burdening others. I`d guess there is nothing in your lease restricting the size of boat the marina can put beside you.
With apologies to Hopcar, I prefer dogs to cats anyway.

Like I said, rare on one side, still searching for another with full length on both sides... (and that is one narrow pier you have).

This is an interesting thread, and I'm glad that it seems to have been solved diplomatically. I have the same problem where my new-to-me boat is berthed in La Paz, Mexico; Double boat berths, with about 3' between our beams. My problem is that I am new to the whole trawler thing, being a sailor newly converted. I do have twin screws, which should help, and I bought two new large fenders for the outside of my boat for docking. I am going to the boat this week and will venture out and in to the dock for the first time. I will post if things go sideways, but I am trying not to stress about it now.

Cheers, Bill

If your docking situation makes you hesitant to use your boat as much, then do something differently, whether a different slip or different marina. 3' sounds like a lot until you each put fenders on both sides of your boats. Then it disappears.

Until you get really handy with the boat , it is usually far easier to pull in FWD to the slip.

Backing out is usually less problem.

Pulling into a slip is easy. Getting on and off the boat might be impossible.

Pulling in may make it more difficult to connect electrical power, depending on the boat's configuration. For me, stern to is always more convenient once I'm in, but yes, the backing in can sometimes be a problem.
