When they built my marina they considered the possibility of fire. In most marinas the flames run up under the roof then travel along the length of the roof and pretty soon the while damn thing is ablaze.

In my marina, if the fire runs up to the roof it can escape and isn't as likely to travel laterally and catch everyone's boat on fire. That vent line that runs along the ridge of the roof is supposed to prevent the flames from passing from one slip to the neighboring slips.

Spiders aren't a big problem, I use a spray called Home Defense from Ortho. I spray the docks, dock lines, cleats and most everything I can see and that prevents them from hanging out on my boat. They seem to like my neighbors' boats better.
