    we have alot of boats that come to my marina for service and when they come in there are always a few people to help them in and they think they work there cause they ask and we tell them we are just there enjoying the weekend. they are always surprised and tell us that they have never been to a marina where people would just get off there boats to help someone in.

    As a kid, our first boat was a sailboat. Ever try docking one of these things? Everybody at the docks would scramble out of their boats to help each other. Learned that day one.
    Later worked as a dock hand in the summers. What a cool job for a youngster!

    I always try to help, but some people get just like to do it the hard way. Although....... I have ran into some people that maybe should not have been helped. Since we have a lakehouse there are always people coming up on shore at night who are drunk, lost, and run out of gas - I don't give them gas because I would rather them sleep it off on the shore than to get themselves hurt. Besided if they don't know where they are then all the gas in the world will not get them home. One time I also had a guy who was drunk run his boat completely out of the water (prop in the air) he asked if we could push him off - I told him that the boat might not float. He said it will - I have done this a couple of times. I should of let him sit on land and wait till the cops picked him up because he didn't have any business on the water. You would thing that after the first time he would stop doing it, but some people never learn.

    That's asking to much. I hope you were laughing the whole time.
