I just went on a delivery on just an 80' powerboat and we took on 2000 gallons and it took forever,it seemed, to fill.(Older Hatteras)Next inline was a 30' sailboat that took on 18 gallons.The dock guys do get commission so I am sure they would rather deal with the 2-4 thousand gallon fill ups rather than the 30' 18 gallon fill up with a water fill up.BUT,when I am delivering sailboats I still tip,not as much as a 100' powerboat ,but I give the guys something at least.
I find the larger the sailboat the nicer the treatment though unfortunately.
