Default Do you help other boaters?

I was at the ramp today loading my boat and having a bit of a time cause current was strong when a guy who just loaded his boat came over and helped. I have noticed that boat people for the most part help each other alot.
How many of you help others out as well?
I remember 10 years ago when I was at the ramp and a nasty storm rolled in, once I was loaded I parked and helped others get out quick. Lots of grateful faces that day.

All the time. It doesn't keep my engines from blowing but it does seem to help on my tow-ins!
