I was out last weekend; it was crowded in the Gulf Islands.

He did have "anchoring rights", but I think you did the right thing. In 35 feet, I would guess you had had about 150-200 of rode out. If he is 250 feet away, no problem. In 150 feet he would have 600 - 750 feet of rode. I know no one who carries that much.
