Mike,

You know of Newmark's? That's where we have our slip, and I agree that they tend to tolerate more than others might. We've been there for over a year now, and we really enjoy the rustic atmosphere. If I were a betting man, I would bet that there are at least a few down there that keep a low profile because they might stay a bit more than the three days a week they are allotted. I'll never tell. What I can tell, is that we have not met anyone that is not really nice. Most everyone watches out for you and your boat. If you're working on something, someone will always stop by for a chat and to offer help/advice.

This is our third marina. We started at Dana Point and liked it there, but when they did not have a slip for our latest boat, we had to look elsewhere. We're glad we did and would not go back to marinas where the people frown on a sailor working on his own boat.
