    Marina Manners

    We've been blessed with great dock neighbors since arriving over 8 years ago. Our current slip is next to a few families that have boated together for three decades and have forgotten more about houseboating than I will ever know. They welcomed us from the day we pulled into our slip, and have helped us in countless ways.

    I hear horror stories about other marinas on our lake and realize how lucky we are. This article from Houseboat Magazine should be required reading by all slip holders. Unfortunately, the trouble makers would be the least likely to take the time to read.

    The most common complaint around our marina is people not cleaning up after dogs.

    We have great Marina People here in Pensacola Area.
    Well, we lost a few marinas with Hurricane Sally on 09/19/2020, so wet slips are hard to come by right now, with many forced to anchor in protected waters. Or finding a friend with an open space at thier private dock

    I hadn't considered the effect of the recent hurricanes on the marinas down there. I hope work is in progress to get those slips and facilities rebuilt.

    The article mentioned some places form slipholders committees. I wonder how many marinas actually have that. I hope some others will chime in and talk about their home marina. I'm sure the situations and challenges are far different between coastal and inland marinas.
