Re: Seagulls Musseling In
I wish we had mussels around here to have that problem!
Most marinas I've been in take keeping the docks clean, and therefore less slippery and safer, pretty seriously! The problem lies in asking a poorly run marina to clean up their act can cause retaliation (like getting kicked out) and that sucks. You are certainly in a pickle. I'd question all the maintenance (especially electrical) standards in a marina without the integrity to keep their docks clean for their patrons and their guests.
Of course, if the slip is dirt cheap, then you are getting what you are paying for, and in this day and age, that may be worth it. Mostly, I've found, slips aren't cheap anywhere.
