Ha! I've often commented that dock life reminds me a lot of dorm life ... right down to everyone noticing that one of the singlehander guys had the same woman over several weekends in a row But in lots of ways - we have small personal spaces, relatively few possessions, and lots of shared common space, whether its the marina lounge or the campus quad, and all share at least one common interest, whether its sailing or final exam pressure. And of course the keg parties.

Does this environment attract a certain kind of person, or shape them?
