Re: Boarding and rafting to stranger's boats.
The only place on the Chesapeake--not including regattas and the like--is in the Dismal Swamp Canal. The reason in the canal? Dockage is very limited, folks may have to stop overnight because of the opening schedule, and anchoring-out is not a legal or practical answer. Either accept rafting or don't take the canal.
My experiences were very polite; refusing would have been rude.
