Dock Parties have a long tradition at the Shipyard...
The “Dock Party” was a common creature of laughing, mingling, eating, drinking, swimming, and other shenanigans between boaters on the same dock. Boaters would place munchies on their dock box and wander the dock getting to know each other better. Believe it or not, I recall many parties on C Dock that involved Herb and other boaters swimming from dock to dock (Before we had a pool, lake swimming was not that uncommon around the marina). *Note: Herb was not usually swimming by choice, but instead I would coerce fearless friends and boaters to help me throw him in!
For many years, E-Dock has held a shrimp and lobster boil. It was is a tasty event bringing everyone together to cook, feast, and share stories. Feel free to organize a party for your dock!
In 2007, we wanted to kick off a Dock Party for the each of the Docks.
The Dock parties were a big, fun success and we have continued them ever sinse! We start small and casual with appetizers
and drinks. However, there is room for flexibility and improvisation,
so just let me know if you have something else in mind. Perhaps one or
two boaters will get together and fire up Kabobs on the grill!
