    Re: Marina Etiquette Tips

    Now there's an IDEA!!!! Ask Captain Andy columnist; Dear S. S. Abbegale; Emily's Standing Post & Boating Ediquette. If all goes well, boaters can gather to have the states adopt such in their boating regulations in efforts that, in later years, we can have a bill passed by Congress and make it law. Wait! that wouldn't be wise since many boaters today seem to enjoy breaking laws. Ouch, did I say that?
    At best, I will just watch my own behavior. As a Southerner would say PROPERLY...some boaters can be just plain idiots...God Bless Em. (use the last phrase and anything you say will always seem OK)

    Re: Marina Etiquette Tips

    This past weekend we got to the marina at 10:00 pm.(marina was closed everybody gone) By the time we got tied up and settled in I wanted to take a stand up shower in the marina facilities. When I got to the door you need a code to get in. I searched the docks for someone still awake. Found one guy in a blow boat. Guess what? He would not give me the code! Now how's that for marina etiquette?

    That dude messed up.

    I would have given you a long series of number that I made up, at least 12 digits, and not written it down. After you walked all the way to the showers and could not open the door and you came back to me Id flip two of the numbers blaming you on being dyslexic. Id keep repeating this to see how many times you keep coming back.


    LOL!

    Just kidding.

    Re: Marina Etiquette Tips

    i agree with the fact that some dog owners need to pay more attention to their animals at the marina.always remember, just because you think your dog is cute that doesn't mean everyone else does too. there is absolutely NO excuse for an animal off its leash at a strangers marina. or on any other dock with people who don't know you or your animals even if its your home port.

    We take our dog everywhere with us and she loves it. She is always on a leash and we carry an ample supply of poop bags at all times to clean up just in case.
