rdstanley We must be really fortunate. Our neighbors are great. To be honest they are the reason we keep our boat on this dock. We have a couple of different live aboards (good ones) who keep an eye on our boat. The neighbors and the comraderie really make the experience.

M275sailer I call my neighbours cheech and chong. If you get my drift. You would if you could smell the smoke coming from their cabin every evening. It's a decrepid old steel 40' stinkpot that doesn't leave the dock. They stay on it for the summer. All the low lifes from town find there way round looking for a party etc. When they first showed up I was neighbourly and lent him my dinghy gas can for his runabout he also has. This was Sunday evening as we were leaving and he says he will be sure to fill it up if he needs to use it to go fishing for the evening just in case his tank runs out. I told him that I will leave my storage locker unlocked and he can put it away tommorow and just lock the padlock. I had my dinghy outboard in there and lots of other valuables. Well I come back Friday to leave for a sailing weekend to find my locker still open and no gas can and no neighbour. I have to go into his boat, retrieve my now empty gas can and get it filled before leaving errrrrrrrr!! I come back to my slip sunday, guess where the runabout is left? In MY F****** SLIP. Nice neighbour eh?

sailingdog What, no photos?? You're slacking... and you don't mention whether she was wearing a top or not. Of course, if she wasn't wearing a top, you might have been a bit distracted.

US27inKS I'm sure he/she was tickled that you got so flustered by his/her presence. I'm sure the cross dressing serves as much for shock value as anything else.

He comes over to start a conversation and I just pull down both halyards. As I'm walking off the dock, it occurs to me...I didn't use a pilot line!!!

Jim H We never got to properly meet our neighbors, and their boat was for sale. Now it's been gone for weeks, and more than a few slips are open around us. I wonder if people have their boats out for cleaning before "the season" starts, or if they are really gone for good....
