Please....

...if you're a planning cruiser, please practice NOT doing this at the dinghy dock. We have enough trouble keeping our dinghies inflated without having them cut by a prop.

But it keeps the alllgeee off the shaft

Alex - you can tip your motor up when it's laying behind your boat, but at the dinghy dock it should be in the down position. Especially at dinghy docks like Dinner Key and Vero because the dinghies are 3 deep in the busy season.

3 deep? Do you tie up on the outside and crawl across other people's boats? or do you squeeze in, off load, then tie up with a long painter?

@John - it depends on whether the people close to the dock have been kind enough to leave their painters long. Sometimes you can pull them out and squeeze in, but most of the time you have to crawl over the close boats and tie up.

Oh wow! That's seriously inconsiderate...and now I find myself wondering if they're 3 deep like that, what's the crime rate like? Are they stolen often?
