    Re: Marina Etiquette Tips

    I don't think it matters who they work for. If the service was good, you tip. When I go to the fuel dock at my marina, I do my own pumpout (I prefer to do it) and, of course, I pump my own gas. The kid gives me a shove off when I leave. I still give him a few bucks, for basically doing nothing. Live and let live.

    Re: Marina Etiquette Tips

    When I had my jet boat it was in a high and dry. Everytime I used it I left 20$ on attached to the flush hose. Everytime I returned it was spotless no matter what the condition I left it.(pretty dirty sandy)20 bucks is def worth it. The fuel Dock I use ties me up fills me up and gives me cookies everytime not to mention the dock master is a beautiful girl just about my age so ofcoarse I tip her well..

    Re: Marina Etiquette Tips

    You are all so spoiled. Not only do we have to do everything ourselves, the marina does nothing to maintain the docks. We do all our own maintenance and repairs and there is never anyone available to pump out for you, ever. So I guess you could say, tipping is a non-issue for us.

    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.
