Re: New to using a slip
Presumably, your marina is okay with you leaving lines, if you see others doing so. It's rare, but some don't like it.
It's common for marinas to rent your slip to a transient, if you will be gone overnight. Transients are not supposed to use your lines. I do leave mine, but recognize they probably will, if I'm not there. Not a big deal. This bigger issue, whether they use them or not, is they won't really be where I left them. Sometimes, they even try to put them back where they found them and, because they look right, it takes a min or two to figure out why they are short by a foot, here and there. Worse, if you rely on a spring line to keep you from hitting something and they tie it long! For day trips, they are always where I left them and big advantage.

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