Except that wasn't in South Florida. Yes, you've watched too much CSI Miami, although things do occasionally happen. But most of the marinas in South Florida are managed pretty well, I've found. Of course I haven't docked at them overnight or for days. But this event was in a relatively small town. The marina had slipped in terms of managing their tenants as they needed all the business they could get and didn't feel they could be selective or run customers away. The manager also never checked things at night. Marina was owned by a Doctor who occasionally vacationed in the area.

Greetings,
Mr. ASD. Well! I never... They used MY "water bonnet" reference WITHOUT a nod to MY skewed sense of humor. Mr. Scott Wilson is definitely off my xmas list for sure!

Well, bonehead people generally don't, by their very nature get it.

But bonehead is also in the eye of the beholder and there was disagreement on many of the points of the "polls". Also, some amount of etiquette is circumstantial. What type marina, what type boat, what are all the circumstances? A simple example is "Don't touch the lines if it's not sinking." Well, what if it's on fire? What if it's banging against and damaging another boat?

Not sure how much good you can do to stop a sinking boat by grabbing a line anyway ;-)

Better be strong to hold one up by a line.

Actually in salvage, often the correct line can really help...often it can keep a boat from rolling upside down which can make the salvage more difficult.

If there's a line and attachment point that is suitable (usually it doesn't take a lot of strain)...and you think it may keep the boat from rolling...then by all means you actions may help the situation.
