Marina Etiquette Tips for You and Your Family
It’s easy to get carried away when it comes to boating, but it’s important to keep the well-being of the people around you in mind. This is especially the case when it comes to where you dock your boat. The tips below will help you keep your marina etiquette skills in tip-top shape.
Don’t Board Other Boats without Permission
As tempting as it may be to explore other boats on the dock, you shouldn’t do so unless you have permission from the boat’s owner. Think about how you would feel if a complete stranger boarded your vessel and started exploring. If you don’t know who owns the boat, you may be out of luck. Be sure to ask nicely – don’t pressure a person into letting you board. Once you get on, be courteous and respectful. Don’t pick up or play with anything, especially if it appears to be fragile or otherwise important.
Never Leave Trash on the Dock and Around the Area
The dock isn’t a place to put things you don’t want anymore. Leaving trash around the area inconveniences other boaters and makes you look like a slob. Have a cleaning plan in place and implement it whenever you visit your boat. Do you have a pile of used bottles and cans on your boat? Take them to a grocery store and exchange them for money instead of leaving them where others will trip over them. Think of the dock area around your boat like your yard – you have to keep it in good shape.
