Yup. Its a bummer, and I can only advise caution and make the judgement when you are there to see it. Yachties have the advantage that they sleep on their boats and are able to monitor it and deal with any problems before they become serious. They are usually quite amicable to letting you put lines to their boat to prevent surging forwards or backwards.
Launching every day is not a huge problem except that the tractor driver probably goes home about 7 o clock.
