Given the choice, I would have a covered slip. That said, I would want to examine the slip (and building), and the neighbors. It may not be justifiable, but I fear a greater risk of fire in them. Also, I have stayed as a transient in a number of them. Some are weekend party centers. Finally, the amount of stuff that clutters the walkways can be an issue as many boat owners see the docks as covered storage. Lastly (really), check with the marina what the rules are. Barbecuing on the docks with gasoline powered boats around, makes me nervous.
