I've only been offshore in other peoples boats, but I ran out of fuel on the river in a town where marinas sold only gasoline. Most of the river has only fishing boats and ski boats, both gas powered. A total stranger drove me 7 miles to a highway station that sold diesel to truckers, where I bought a fuel can and a couple gallons of diesel. He took me back to the boat and would accept nothing but my thanks! There are still good people in the world!
