    Re: Marina Etiquette Tips

    I have to reply to this thread even tho it's over a year dormant.......no issues here tipping at my home Marina and gas dock....it's "manned" by 20-30 year old bikinied girls....money FLIES out of our boaters pockets.

    secondly......if your not tipping at least 20% to waitresses and servers who do a decent job while owning and maintaining a boat of ANY size you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Dude I'm down the James River at Leeward Marina "owned and operated by the city of Newport News. They can not/will not take tips. There is laws against city employs taking tips. And I think there probably are laws against offering them. Funny thing is I think they deserve them.

    The key is in how you define a 'decent job'.

    acknowledge me quickly....get me a beer....get me another beer.....get my food to me hot....get me a another beer...get me outa there when I'm ready. Pretty simple stuff....these are places I frequent a lot on the lake....I don't want the reputation of being a cheap bastid....they ARE in control of my drinks AND food...if ya get my drift.
