We have a mix, with the hard-partying/dockside types gravitating toward C dock and the laid-back/sailing types gravitating toward A dock. It only takes a year or so of somebody new feeling out of place on A or C before they are shuffled into the right area or end up between the two on B dock and feeling like they fit in, slip sizes/draft permitting.

Ours is pretty laid back, no real hardcore partiers ( except Jiffylube, he's a party animal with groupies and everything ) all good people to be around

Fortunately, I've never had a boat at a marina that doubles as a party location. Frankly, being around folks that drink to excess is generally obnoxious. Our marina is a place to keep our boats between times we are out in them. The folks are friendly, respectful, and quiet. Just about perfect.

Our marina is about 50% live-aboard and most are north of 60 yrs old. They all have too much time on their hands and suffer from cabin fever.

Due to family emergencies we were away from the boat for about 4 months this year. When everything settled down and we were finally able to get out we were on it for two weekends back to back (marina contract allows 72hrs/wk). The wife of the marina manager cornered my 15 year old daughter on the dock at the end of the second weekend, told her we were in big trouble with the marina for trying to live aboard the boat without authorization and that she was going to take action. I tried to reason with her and the manager. I explained that we in fact were not "Sneak-aboards" but they had "Witnesses".

The ridiculous part of this is that the manager lives on the end tie just 4 slips down the dock and the dock captain lives directly across from me. Security walks the docks and checks the boats every afternoon.

Yep, I even got them to admit fri-mon was not abusing the policy. At issue is that they contend we are living on the boat continuously. Lets see, my wife and I have jobs, the kids attend school and we get the marina invoices at our home address 130mi away. It's like reasoning with a tree.

The boat to the left of us is a termite habitat that's in danger of sinking but they don't hassle him because he has the decency to stay away. I chalk it up to the retirement village mentality, old people with too much time on their hands.

Having to stay at a marina while I work, I must admit that I don't socialize much. The marina is part of a hotel and they have deck parties Fri, Sat, and Sun nights from 5 to 9, but I don't go. Don't really know if there are any party animals here, but most of the liveaboards are older and tend more to gather of a morning over coffee or breakfast from what I see.

It's about a 50/50 mix of power and sail, with about 20 or so that could be called yachts. The marina has occasional seasonal buffet parties late Sat afternoons. People are friendly and don't intrude. I find it a good place to be if I have to be in a marina.

My feelings would be hurt if I wasn't SURE you mean people even older than me.
