And we have the same here too, but primarily on private docks.

...Most local/public docks in BC, anyhow, have been turned over to local harbour authorities whom I doubt are going to get into a bunch of written regulations.
Understandably so, but my concern is with the un-posted, public docks. I've cruised enough along the West coast and North to your neck of the woods to find most public docks lacking any signage at all. With no signage or Governing regs to be had, we're back to the "it's the local custom" argument, which again, holds little water in any court of law if property damage or bodily harm was to be incurred.
