- Personally, welcomes guests to the fuel dock or their assigned slips, assisting with fuel service, lines, and in-slip utilities such as electricity and water; as well as the facilitation of any provisioning via dockside service such as ice, merch, beverages, etc.

- Works diligently to maximize upsell opportunities through the promotion of on-site offerings and the Extend, Repeat, Connect or “ERC” program.

- Assists the Dock Team Lead with the pleasant enforcement of all Champlin’s Marina & Resort Dockage Agreement rules and regulations with guest and team safety top of mind.
