Security on your dock…

It’s summer and we have a lot of new boats on the dock-subletting or new tenants.  As liveaboard residents it is incumbent upon us to “know our neighbors”. When you see someone “new” on the dock…be it guests of a neighbor or new tenants, introduce yourself, ask them “how you can help them?”, “who are you looking for?”.

Some will say the name of the boat and owner they are visiting…go ahead and make small talk which will show you are friendly and aware of their presence.  Some will say they are new…welcome them to the dock!  Some will get defensive (they tailgated through the gate) and say they are “just looking”.  Kindly say to them that we are a community down here and that we watch out for our neighbors, and that they need to check in with the office before coming onto the docks-whether doing maintenance or looking at boats for sale.

If you have any concerns, immediately call the marina cell number (206-601-4089) and security will be there within minutes to take over.

Be aware.  Ask questions. Your neighbors will thank you!
