  • What do you do if someone anchors too close to you?
  • How do you make friends when people are constantly arriving and departing?
  • What’s a boat card? Are they really necessary?
  • Is it okay to remove someone’s clothes from a washer in the laundromat?
  • How do you socialize if you don’t drink alcohol? If you have dietary restrictions or food allergies?
