Minecraft – Does this dock work?

minecraft-java-edition

I have designed a dock in which you have a water stream preventing the boat from going out of my desired perimeter.

What I did was make a wall with a 3 block wide opening facing the water. Then place sign boards on either side so that there is no water stream towards the ocean or my dock.

Here and there. After that all I had to do was put water both sides and the stream facing each other.
At last cover it all up like that.

I did some testing but I would like you guys to test it out too and answer if there are any problems.

Does it work... Well, I'll leave that up to you to decide. It does seem that it does hold a boat. So in that sense it does work. Hooray!

However, boats are finicky. Still. So there's a good chance that you'll end up just crashing it anyway. Since you get a whole boat back when you punch it, just breaking your boat and leaving it in a chest is probably a better option than crashing it into a wall anyway.
