Re: marina etiquette question

I try to carry a stash of fives for this stuff. Marina guys and gals go the extra mile to give you an extra push, an extra long reach for the hose, fend you off the bad piling, or whatever. In FL, in the summer especially, you should tip because the guy or gal will be breaking a sweat no matter what. You know they don't get paid squat and they can keep you from getting another ding on the rail, or can keep you from looking like a dumba$$.

Just tip...it's only like .005 of a boat buck.
