Sailerdoc you raise a good point as closeness is a subjective issue. I generally like to keep my distance from other boaters (unless I know them) as I will occasionally enjoy a smoke and dont want others to be offended by the smell. I also dont want to hear my neighbors talking or snoring. I thought nearly a football field length to be sufficient. I certainly have anchored in far far tighter spaces, like English Bay for the Celebration of Light fireworks, where there are several hundred boats (maybe more) of all shapes and sizes in a square kilometer (the event draws 300,000 people per night typically).
