You know, its funny, but during the last few weeks leading up to the election, politics seemed to be really running amuk on the docks. Some feel very strongly both ways. We kinda had a rule that during dock partys, there was no talk of religon or politics - especially where there was alcohol involved.

The issue with the stink potters (of which I do not include trawlers) is that most of the boats do not have live aboards. I personally just don't think most "Sea Rays" make good liveaboards. As such, you only see these people on the weekends and not much even at that. We do have exceptions - like the couples that show up pretty much every weekend fand we all get to know them. They come to our get-togethers. Everyone's invited!!!
