Or a broken shift cable, transmission problem, throttle problem. I've seen these at my marina and I've seen a few boat crashes there because of mechanical problems.

As I posted above, we jump to help if we can. It might be us the next time.

My bad quoted the wrong post. It was supposed to be the one about coming in on slack tide. Sincere apologies.

Thanks, but no thanks! Today I worked on transferring fuel and replacing fuel shut off valves through the lazarrette hatch in my cockpit. I was shaded and protected from the wind. It was very comfortable.

Tonight I'm here with the aft doors wide open, enjoying the thunderstorm that's currently passing through. It's wild with very heavy rain and loads of lightning. I'm standing here warm and dry as can be, enjoying the show. It's magical!

Try doing that on K Dock!

Maybe it's time to give this guy some lessons

Al, If this guy is not a total ahole. You might offer to give him a few lessons in boat handling. Who knows it might actually save you angst of hearing him deny removing large chunks of your swim platform. Or another approach would be to invest in some of those fenders designed for stern in docking to protect your boarding platform and a 1/2 doz large round fenders between boats. at least he didn't hook your hose and shore to his boat. Had that happen.

Boat handling skills can be rapidly developed in others.

In a marina where I lived some of the folks were very casual entering and leaving a slip.

Yes there was a good tide but only a bit of concentration would do the trick.

The local used boat store TRADER JOHN purchased a pile of safety gear from the Waldorf Astoria .

There was few dozen 10 ft pikes , painted red.

Boat hooks have friendly ends , the pike ends in a steel sharp point.

By sending a lady friend to the bow to hold the pike with a helpful look on her face , arrivals and departures at full flood or ebb, a lack of contact was assured.
