The Bear's two cents:
As d hays states above. Basicly the "golden rule applies: Do unto others as you would have them do to you. Safety first, Polite, a close second, fun and enjoyment when ever possible. Help when you can but don't impose except when safety for you and them is envolved , learn from each other, share what you know and be open minded, even when "stink potters" are involved. We, rag boaters, are a small community but be ever mindful that we can and should lead the way to a pleasent and joyful time on the water for all.
