Re: marina etiquette question

If the job is a tipping job like a waitress then the money she gets for wages in this country doesn't pay the gas to get to work. Now I know in other country's employers either pay a living wage or go out of business Darwin style. But here either tip or don't eat in the restaurant. Most places around the water with tourists like Florida just add it to the bill to help those who don't know any better.

And if you want Johnny on the spot service from someone working less than a living wage then tip up front like I do. Go to a busy nightclub and make the bartender wait for a tip see what happens.
Sometimes a few bucks up front to the server or dock boy makes all the difference between a great stay and a lousy one. Hey at 160 dollars plus plus a night for a 40 footer in KW maybe the 10 bucks up front will let you get close to your moneys worth.
