Re: What do I do if someone anchors too close?

I'm a lawyer.
You gotta document both the damage as well as your claim of who caused it.
To do both take pictures, and all the appropriate authorities to make a report. The report and the pictures (your testimony and your evidence) is all you need to prevail. Ask the friend who saw where you anchored to be on hand when you give your report---make sure the authorities write down what your friend tells them also.
If you dont do both...its just his word against yours.
But if you do both...you will get the money you will need to fix your boat.
