I use an 18' Alumaweld (jet) with no problem. I like Richmond because it's not straight in front of the gate and it's an easy drive to the middle bay spots. Just use common sense and you'll be fine. Sounds like you're a cautious guy anyway.

Remember that shiners can be picked up ahead of time and work really well. You don't have to make the run for chovies, unless you just prefer to.
Good luck, let us know how you did.
