Re: Boarding and rafting to stranger's boats.
On BC public docks , rafting is mandatory, and always has been. You have no right to stop anyone from rafting to you. If you dont want to be rafted up to, stay out of public docks and stay in private marinas.
Wouldn't that only really logically apply where it is the custom to do so, and boaters who dock have fair warning so they can choose not to be rafted without forewarning?
Or do you believe that that ought to just apply anywhere, regardless of local custom?
