We're not expecting them to work unsupervised.
The age demographic is pretty similar just about everywhere. Young families tend to have less disposable income to boat, or the family activities create time conflicts. Once the kids get to around 16+, they start to stay home more and are down at the marina less frequently. Obviously you don't want an 8 year old doing it. I was at a dockominium for a few years where there was a very tight-knot family with two teenage boys (16-19-ish). They basically started a side hustle doing maintenance (painting, washing, waxing, detailing). Since this marina had no services available, people loved it.
