See the marina for review of the rental contract terms signed by your parent.
See the Harbormaster if you think the marina has failed to fulfill a contract.
Obtain a private attorney to represent you if contract terms were violated.
Photograph all portions of vessel immediately, file a criminal report with law
enforcement to obtain a case number for reference purposes, and have the
vessel surveyed if you think seaworthiness has been compromised.

I want a boat, but I am having a hard time with deciding what to buy. Help?
Question answered by BoomBoom
It might help you to go to a yachting or sailing school. Get your boating marine license. Then, through your course of study speak with your instructors to assist you on the best type of boat for you...by the time you go through the school you may not even want a boat..who knows.
what is the main differneces between all branches of the military?
what are each responsible for? the mission objectives?
Question answered by K-9
Mostly what area they cover. Read below:
Army: Mostly land, vehicles mostly land (Tanks, Trucks, Humvees). Also has good ground "special forces".
Navy: Mostly land, vehicles mostly ships, with some planes and helicopters. Also the overseeing body of the "NAVY SEALs" and elite special forces which often is transported by boat.
Marines: Used to be part of the navy, now it's own entity. Sort of like an "elite" army. Missions are often more structured than the army. They are also "the first to arrive". Meaning they have quick response times to situations. Highly trained group of people. Uses all kinds of vehicles and equipment.
Air Force: Pretty self explanatory. Vehicles mostly planes and other aircraft. Mostly air missions. Transports troops from other branches sometimes. Edit: Astronauts are often members of the air force. Air Force is also known for being quite "technical" or "scientific".
Coast Guard: Often people don't consider this military, but it actually is. Basically a smaller version of the navy. Mostly patrols along us shores. More of a protective service than anything else, but sometimes does overseas work.
People will always ask the question on here "which branch is the best?". The answer is all of them. There is no better branch. Sure it may be a bit more prestigious to say "I was in the Marines" than "I was in the Army", but they are all respectable and all a good career path. Just choose the one that best fits you. If you need anymore help, just ask.
What's a good way to clean and preserve rubber products exposed to the envirement?
Question answered by riverrat
I don't recall the manufacturer but the product is called '303'. It's advertised as "sunscreen for your stuff". You can find it at most boating/marine or rafting/kayaking type stores. I have used it sucessfully to preserve drysuit neck and wrist gaskets. It comes in a small spray bottle for about $10 and is very easy to apply. If you have a big job buy the gallon jug and put it in your own sprayer.
Should I cut off my long hair for bootcamp?
im going to boot camp in January for the Marines. I just want to know if long hair is just as easy to maintain in bootcamp as short hair. If cutting my hair off makes my life easier in bootcamp then I think i want to to it. I love my long hair though and I dont want to cut it off if its not going to be benificial.
Question answered by DrZ
Hair grows back. You won't have time to do anything with your hair. Regulations state that your hair cannot touch your collar. So you either become very efficient at putting it up in a bun or cut it short enough not to worry about it. If you do cut it...consider donating your hair.
Boats.... Marine Boot camp for women is only in Parris Island, SC and not Camp Pendleton which isn't a Marine Recruit Depot.
