When I ask people they don't seem to get why and look inconvenienced.

Looking to see if I am the only one that says take you shoes off.

I am getting Seadek this year so now I am really going to want people to take them off :)

What do you do in your boat?
Just last month we had a friend join us in the afternoon. He walked across the new asphalt parking lot and stepped onto the boat and guess what was left on my floor. ...... 2 prefect shoe prints in Black Asphalt. Thankfully we got the prints out. Another thing are the little rock pebbles that are always on the bottom of shoes. They'll scratch the seats and floor . Don't think twice about asking them to remove their shoes prior.

We just make it very very clear.... take your shoes off on the back deck. People are just not aware of how much crap is on their shoes or what it does to carpet and upholstery. Boat carpet and seats are generally very very light in color so they dont absorb heat and become 8000 degrees.

makes you wonder how dirty house carpet is, its typically muddle dark colors.

Whenever we have people join us on the boat we go through boat rules: we start with actual legal rules like where the life jackets are and who needs to wear them, where you can or can't sit, etc., then follow up with our own rules which do include no shoes. I haven't noticed anyone having a problem with any of it, usually everyone is in a good mood and ready to have fun.

the only problem we have is coming in to a dock/marina they grab their shoes and start putting them on in the boat, and i play dad "get them shoes off!!" lol defeats the purpose of taking them off in the first place

My dad is the only one who gets a pass. He’s got funky toenails so I let him slide. Otherwise, take your damn shoes off.

i hear that. I started telling my daughter to put her friends shoes out on the dock so they have no choice but to put them on off the boat.

as captains of our vessels, we need to assign a designated shoe officer to stow the shoes and throw them on the boards when we dock.

Make boats clean again!
