Is the marina enforcing that rule to save the boater from sinking his boat or to safe money if the water flows unabated into the boat?

Where is this marina? It is a reasonable request for sure, but as full time cruisers for several years I have not seen this requirement anywhere we have been to yet . In the past 12 months alone we have been in about 39 marinas in 11 states and have not yet seen any such requirement. It sounds reasonable for sure. We just have never seen it.
