In my marina, it seems common for people to help each other out. For example, the first year I moored my boat I needed to learn about things like securing sail covers and things like that. One day I rowed out to my boat and saw that the sailcover had a line tied all around it. Hmm, I didn't leave it like that, what happened? Then a neighbor popped up out of his boat and told that another neighbor was on his boat and noticed that during a blow my sailcover was blowing off and the mailsail was starting to come undone as well. He got in his dingy, went to my boat, and properly secured things. I learned a lot that year. I also helped him out when I saw that his old wood boat was sitting real low in the water. By now I was smart enough to have cell phone numbers for my mooring neighbors, so I called him and let him know. He went right down with a fresh battery and got the bilge pump running.
Since then I have boarded boats to secure headsails that were coming loose, added docklines to boats that were getting away, etc.
If someone wants to sue me for trying to help, go right ahead.
