Default Dock Service?

When pulling in to a nice resturant on the water, how much is the standard tip for the service of being tied up and the ladies being helped out of the boat?

Providing you dont have to ask for the help and its competent.

Unless you get off the boat wearing a tux, I would say a five spot is sufficient.

Yeah- ok this is a "tip modifier"

If you dont see a spot or arent pulling up to it directly - and 2 guys need to move your boat to the spot and go get it then a 20 is the right amount.

5 for a quickie "rope and hold"-
20 for a full service park job.

True if its empty and I just tie it up then I usually find the guy give him 10 and tell him to keep an eye on my boat.For the most part they look out for me a Trump so I take care of them.
