Ironically, I have the opposite situation. Where I am in our marina, the depth is 7 metres under the boat - they dredged our section out really well - other areas not so deep, but deep enough. Actually, Moreton Bay being what it is, on a common trip out, unless we head up to the more northern and open parts of the bay, our berth is the deepest sounding we see.

At least if you drop something valuable overboard at the berth, you have a reasonable chance of recovery. When I dropped my bow roller assembly, (yeah….forgot to tie a line to it - I was "just seeing how it looked" - it slipped, bounced off the dock, and you guessed it), it cost me two cartons of beer to a nearby berth-holder with scuba gear to retrieve it.

"Double up your lines, start the engines and idle ahead or back depending on which way you want the mud to run and dig yourself a shallow hole to sit in."

This just moves the mud to another slip or into the channel.

If the slip was deep last year and its just mud , no problem , you will soon push a hole bigger than the boat .

Olnu operate the engine when fully afloat , and check the strainers as a precaution when you leave.

Sometimes the best slips have a minor hassle , mud is one.
