Re: Boarding and rafting to stranger's boats.
I'll bet that in the rules and regulations of the public dock it says that you have to accept people rafting up to you.
Well.....You'd lose that bet. As was pointed out by another member, the dock forbids rafting. Here is an quote from our local sailing rag as to why:
"Grant points out that the surge from ferries and commercial traffic is clearly the common-sense
reasoning behind the dock's 'no rafting' rule
, and suggests doubling up on docklines and adding spring lines, no matter how long you plan to stay. The 180-ft dock, open from 10 a.m.-10 p.m., has a three-hour limit and can accommodate boats up to 40 feet."
