DrB—

It is worth asking them to check the other guy's mooring as well. It could be that they placed it wrong, or that both moorings dragged. What do you use for a mooring anchor up there? A 3000 lb. concrete block isn't much of a mooring anchor IMHO, since concrete loses a significant amount of its weight in water. Concrete is about 145 lbs/cubic foot, but loses about 45% of its weight in salt water, since seawater is 64 lbs./cubic foot.

It would be worth mentioning how the other boat's mooring slot doesn't seem to line up.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
