I don't think there is anything inherent about a sailor that is cheap, but the cheap would naturally be more inclined to sail.
I try to give as much as I take. I will spend an extra few dollars on a gallon of motor oil at the marina, rather than only buy at the deep discount stores. I would like that marina to succeed and be there next year. If you notice yourself saying "I paid for my slip/mooring and don't owe them anything, they owe me", you are probably the tenant they have a problem with.
There are also marinas that have a bad attitude, period. Reviews, both positive and negative, on activecaptain.com are the best way to both reward and expose behavior.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
