Re: Going ashore while on the hook

You do the best you can, and hope for the best. You can mitigate the risk of others' fouling you by anchoring away from the nicer/more convenient spots (kinda like parking your cherry 57 Chev at the outer edge of the mall parking lot)

But it's not realistic to stay on the boat all the time.. the shore excursions are/should be a large part of the reason you're doing what your doing. So you do you best, and hope...
