I stopped in here to get a quick replacement part so I could complete a nearby dive project. I tied up and got halfway to the marina office to ask for permission to meet a co-worker waiting in the parking lot with my part and was immediately confronted with a fellow on the dock who berated me for not "making arrangements ahead of time" and told me "this is a private boat club and tie-ups aren't allowed" and told me to leave. There are no signs anywhere that make mention of this. I assume this guy was part of the marina staff (WM, 30-40's, heavy, short hair, apoplectic), but he's not on the staff page of the marina website. I've been in the boating community for 20+ years, and I've never seen this kind of snobbish hostility. I'm going to petition both my yacht clubs to never extend reciprocity to this marina.
