I hesitate to suggest it, because it's viewed as a "miscellaneous" tag, but
in this case it seems
rather appropriate.  amenity=slipway.

Of course, it may take a while (possibly a very long while) before
renderers catch up, so
people will continue to use leisure, so the renderer people will say it's
not used enough, as
will the editor people, so you may decide to stick with leisure.
