  1. Don't use the launch ramp lanes to prep and load your boat. That's what make-ready areas are for.

  2. Don't jump the line of those others waiting to launch or load. It could result in a physical altercation.

  3. Don't use the launch ramp lanes to secure your boat for the ride home. Clear the ramp area as quickly and safely as possible.

  1. Don't tie up at the courtesy dock any longer than necessary. Be considerate of other boaters.

  2. Don't take forever at the wash-down rack. Remember that other boaters want to wash their boats, too.
