I find wind to be less an issue down low in a canal. Wind tends to shoot over the top of the boat provided there is some elevated stuff on either side. Second that about making sure other boats are well tied. And if there are things beyond free standing piles (trees, ground based structure) those are better as yes, pilings can be pulled sideways. Pilings bolted to dock structure are much stronger, those tend to be ok.
