Don't want to believe it, but.. I've heard it from 2 different people.
It is normal for a marina to require proof of ownership in the form of copies of the vessel document or state registration and proof of insurance with the marina named as additionally insured. As for the rumors, if you do not pay your rent the marina has a right to place a lien on the vessel. If a particular marina has a bad reputation, do not deal with them. Work with reputable operators and pay your bills on time.
