Re: Is it safe to sleep overnight at the marina?

By now, the OP has sold her boat and bought a Winnebago and is sleeping in the desert. Way to go, people.
No, sleeping in a marina is not safe. The environment outside of your home isn't safe. Nowhere is safe.
Everywhere has an element of risk. Accept it, embrace it. IMO, most marinas within the continental US are at the low end of the "risk spectrum" for violent crime, and at the low-to-middle range of the "risk spectrum" for petty crime like dinghy and outboard motor theft.
Why is everyone so hell bent on dying quietly on their sofa?
