What we were told at Ganges in August, when we fueled. The Admiral was in the cockpit, grabbing something, and the dock hand had a coronary. She stepped off and the dock hand gave me the hose. She gets off all the time anyway, but this time she had to grab her wallet, so she could uhm, pay. Dock hand said something about people trapped inside a boat that caught fire and they were killed and now itís the law. He provided no details and I didnít ask.

Same guy that would not give us water on the dock despite us filling our fuel tank.
