Since I've never done this before, I have questions regarding the procedures for getting a pump-out at a marina. Do I just dock at the marina and ask for a pump-out? Is it bad etiquette to get a pump-out without purchasing anything else at the marina such as gas, etc.? Do I do the pump-out or do the dock hands that do the pump-out or does it vary by marina? Is there a fee for this or do I just tip the dock hand if they assist?

I want to make sure that I'm not 'that guy' when I pull into a marina to get a pump-out and make sure I'm following proper boating etiquette/marina etiquette when doing this.

Thanks for your responses!
