Am I CRAZY here?
Maybe it's a regional thing.

I wouldn't expect anyone we invited on our boat to bring their own dishes and glassware any more than I'd expect if if you came to our house - invited or not. If we have so many people on board that there isn't enough silverware to go around, the boat's overloaded.

Now, for club raft-ups, which might be up to 30 boats, where everyone contributes an appetizer, I will carry my own wine glass to the party raft and along with my food, contribute a bottle to the community pot.

I understood the original post to be from a cruisers' perspective - island hoping. Cruisers have limited water and from what I've read, it is common courtesy to bring your own dishes when invited over to another boat. Perhaps I'm misinformed ...

I see your point. After giving it some thought, I don't know that I would expect it there either. I would think Joy (suds up in salt water) and sea water would be fine to clean dishes so that fresh water is not depleted.

I could be off base, however. I'll find out when we go to the islands in April I guess.

The other issue with dishes and glassware is that if you are living on yourboat year round you don't exactly have room for dinner service for 12.

I can understand that being an issue more than the water.

Good point on the cruising, I think you're right in the OP's perspective. I have no Idea when it comes to "cruising" I just sail to the local Islands.

Clanging halyards are fine, so long as they aren't on my boat! Sounds like expensive cordage losing life!

Fenders down under way... Ugh. I hate it when I do it, is it just me?

Wake in a no wake zone, from anything. I make an exception when it is a 3 foot wake kicked up by a sailboat exceeding hull speed surfing by, now that is just showing off.

I see the logic of bringing my own dishes. I would think the host less offended then if they were short. I plan to follow this advice.

In my experience one brings a contribution - appetizer and/or wine or beer - but not dinnerware unless specifically asked. For quite big gatherings sometimes folks run out of plates, but most of us certainly can do six or eight.

Dinghy raft-ups you are on your own.

Leaving a sharp gaff out where someone could trip on it could be a painful gaffe.

Boarding without permission of course (outside of a genuine emergency) is a big no-no.

Boarding with mark-leaving street shoes.

Some of the more egregious boo-boos with flags.

Plugging your hosts' head.

Telling law enforcement/Coast Guard/customs agents/naval patrols just what they can do with their boarding party.
