Re: What do I do if someone anchors too close?
TQA: If you are single handed and an anchor boat is actively being blown into yours you would really allow the damage to take place while you raise anchor and get away? It's not like you can both fend and deal with the anchor at the same time.
Had the boat been spotted when 20' away and there was time to spare that would be one thing.
northoceanbeach: Let us know how it goes. I agree with the general advice of documenting and filing a complaint with the police and his insurance. Hopefully you have insurance who will fight for your side.
