La Mordida

God knows that Iíve paid my share of La Mordida in Mexico, where it's a way of life (part of the culture), but to suggest that bribery is common in the US is outrageous. Sorry, but this one was SO silly, I just had to respond.

Perhaps you've never heard of ABSCAM,AZSCAM or that congressman on the gulf coast with $100,000 in his fridge.
Self interest is a powerful force.
Use it to your advantage.
A couple hundred bucks is an easy way to move to the top of a waiting list.

BTW I've got a slip for $220 a month.What do you have?
You can't argue with results.

Yes, and because of your thoughtlessness, somebody else that is waiting patiently and paying every year to be on a list, is still waiting. But you got yours, so who cares, right?

According to your signature line you shouldn't have a problem with someone who is smarter and uses his resources to his advantage.
Of course hippocracy is common in government workers.

I don't make the rules,but I do find ways to get around them.

Wow, you mean if I was to call Ann Hardinger ( the harbor master ) and gave her 600.00 I could get a 45' slip, that might be an entertaining phone call

Save your dime poopdeck, after his last reply, I contacted Berkeley Marina. By the way Mr. brain trust, you spelled the name of your own marina wrong. Admitting to bribery in writing is not a good idea, yes, I went back in my browser history and saved your post before you edited it.

After 3 years on a waiting list I was knocked off by a guy who signed up way after me, he'd bought Butler's old Caltalina, then bought his way on to the next available. Not only that, he went around the marina bragging about it. Curses and mal suerte to the bastich.

Unfortunately, there will always be people who can't spell or play by the rules...thinking themselves to be above them. Reasonably priced slips are becoming more and more difficult to find.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
