There’s a community boat dock in Southwest Harbor, Maine. And when they say “community,” they mean community — every square inch of mooring space is taken, and then some.
I found this completely engaged community dock curiously encouraging. Obviously, the boaters of Southwest Harbor, with diverse crafts of all shapes, sizes, and conditions, can get together and make accommodations tthat permit their mutual use of, and benefit from, this single dock.
Who knows? Maybe there’s hope that the rest of us can do likewise.
