I could almost live with their poor practices but the headsail sheet thing would have seen my top pop.

Did you speak with them ? I presume you must have had some communication when you took off.
They weren't around when I left. To get out, I dragged their boat back and tied it to a prawn boat with his two lines. In hind sight I should have used his sheet as a spring line on the prawner. Didn't really cross my mind to get back at him and would that just be lowering my self to his level, maybe I should once in a while.
