So my buddy Brian was secured to our long float near the transient moorage area and this fancy white transient stink pot was ahead of him and the 4 of them were sitting in their fancy white & red spotted deck chairs in a circle on the dock chit-chatting it up. Brian was standing in his galley cooking up some coffee when he spies upon they're little poodle walk over and crap on his excess bow line sitting on the float and he also watches these people pointing at the dog and smiling but doing nothing.

So Brian takes his time, puts his sugar and milk in his coffee, grabs his giant plastic soup spoon and a book and climbs into his cockpit. He stands up straight and stretches his arms out wide making himself quite visible and noticed, then he kicks back in his cockpit with his book.

After about 10 minutes he picks up his soop spoon, casually stepping onto the float and he meanders over to his line. He stoops down and scoops it up and out of the corner of his eye he can see these people watching him and looking sheepish. With the $hit on the stick, he walks over to the edge of the float between the bow of his boat and the bow of theirs where there is a nice open spot of water for dumping it.

He then dumps it on the bow of their boat and casually walks back to his cockpit and continues with his book.

These people said absolutely nothing and were soon on their way.

We never got to properly meet our neighbors, and their boat was for sale. Now it's been gone for weeks, and more than a few slips are open around us. I wonder if people have their boats out for cleaning before "the season" starts, or if they are really gone for good....

My ex-slip neighbor (I've since moved about 12 slips away), is what my kids called the "man-woman"...a cross-dresser. Our first meeting (in full female mode...and who bears a striking resemblance to Twisted Sister's Dee Snyder in high heels) he strikes up a conversation and asks me my name..being polite I ask his. He replies, " I have 2 names...one when I'm a boy...and another if I'm a girl." So I learn to live with this real life cartoon character. But one day, as I'm pulling down the halyards to wash them, he comes out half-n-half....I can handle one or the other....but not this. He comes over to start a conversation and I just pull down both halyards. As I'm walking off the dock, it occurs to me...I didn't use a pilot line!!!

I'm sure he/she was tickled that you got so flustered by his/her presence. I'm sure the cross dressing serves as much for shock value as anything else.

I was transient at a marina and got up early in the morning. I was sitting in the cockpit relaxing when a girl gets off a go-fast boat and walks down the dock. She's wearing hot pants, seamed stockings and 4" heels. Several times she launches a big loogie into the water. I wonder what bad taste she was trying to get rid of???

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.

What, no photos?? You're slacking... and you don't mention whether she was wearing a top or not. Of course, if she wasn't wearing a top, you might have been a bit distracted.

I call my neighbours cheech and chong. If you get my drift. You would if you could smell the smoke coming from their cabin every evening. It's a decrepid old steel 40' stinkpot that doesn't leave the dock. They stay on it for the summer. All the low lifes from town find there way round looking for a party etc. When they first showed up I was neighbourly and lent him my dinghy gas can for his runabout he also has. This was Sunday evening as we were leaving and he says he will be sure to fill it up if he needs to use it to go fishing for the evening just in case his tank runs out. I told him that I will leave my storage locker unlocked and he can put it away tommorow and just lock the padlock. I had my dinghy outboard in there and lots of other valuables. Well I come back Friday to leave for a sailing weekend to find my locker still open and no gas can and no neighbour. I have to go into his boat, retrieve my now empty gas can and get it filled before leaving errrrrrrrr!! I come back to my slip sunday, guess where the runabout is left? In MY F****** SLIP. Nice neighbour eh?
