Id definately be pizzed off.. I run my family's marina and always take care to treat everyones boat there like its my own. Cause that is how I would want someone to take care of mine if it was somewhere else. Even when people say I can step on thier seat, I always crawl onto the boat with my feet in the air or without shoes on. I'd complain.

If none of that works, Wear your 44 mag on the outside in plain site when they move the boat. Maybe even clean it in plain site of the aholes while they are moving it. Sprinkle some shells around in the boat. Maybe they understand fear.

Ditto.. Same here. It leaves our shop as clean or cleaner than when it came in. There is no excuse for leaving a boat pigged oout... Jamie / Lakeside

I agree totally, never give anybody the chance to mess up your stuff. I agree it's wrong not to take care of client's boats, but I'll never give them the chance to mess it up. Nobody takes care of your stuff like you do.

I've had a variety of experiences with marinas. The absolute best place is Legendary Marina in Destin, Florida. They have several dock hands standing by to help bring your boat in, someone to direct traffic and will even fuel your boat for you at no charge over regular pump rates. Doesn't matter how clean (or not) your boat is, none of their workers gets in your boat without putting on hospital-like booties. I can't get over how much they go out of their way to cater to their customers.

Each marina will have a different attitude about serving their customers. Talk to the manager (be polite), if that doesn't work, look for a marina that will meet your expectations.

Spray some WD-40 on the stain, sometimes that gets it out.

I wouldn't be afraid to say something to the mgr. at all. They are there to take care of you and your boat. If you're not happy about something let them know about it. Just be polite about it and hopefully they will respect your wishes and not let it happen again.
