90+% of the repairs, sanding, painting, varnishing of the exterior and interior was done at the dock. The draw back was having to keep the area clean and put everything away each time so not to noticeable. Knowing the marine security schedule also helped. The main reason we moor on the commercial dock is they do not birch, complain and the marina tends to leave the commercial dock alone. Pleasure boaters are just TO! I will take most commercial docks over a pleasures any day.
