Rule 1: Party Naked
NO SHOES; and if you are ever invited on a boat remove your shoes and it will greatly increase your chance of being invited again. (stated already in above quote)
Don't pack enough junk for a week. Space is limited.
No heavy drinking.
No clowning around while running fast and always hold on.
#2 and #7 need work, but the rest I can agree with!
I always have bought my own fuel becuase of how "I" drive the boat.. The majority of the fun is running the sticks, so if someone else is paying for it, it doesnt seem fair that I burn it as fast as I do.. If you want to throw $100 in the tank, you're more than welcome to do so but its not expected at all..
With that being said, I'd prefer they pick up the drinks, ice, snacks, lunch, etc. instead.. And if someones wife is comin and NOT bringing hot single friends, they better be packin some sammiches!
edit: oh, and no smoking, I get plenty of it from my outboards.. bleh!

Example: If I am out in the water and my wife isn't comfortable going 80 with conditions however they are, I am going to slow down. The same if its one of my buds, I may give him $hit later though. If my wife brings a friend boating and she gets uncomfortable going anywhere over 60, I can respect that. If she can't handle anything over 35, than we will have a problem.
Gas money is always welcome but not expected. I would be out there with or without them so i would be paying for the gas anyway.
And at the end of the day i always have all onboard pitch in and wipe the boat down when it gets pulled out. I have spray bottles with dilute simple green and towels to wipe down with.
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!
I also expect nothing from my guests. No gas; No work. If someone brings beverages or pays for my lunch at a stop that is appreciated but not expected either. I only ask for good company and for you to take off your f*cking shoes!
