Part of the lure of sailing/cruising is the alternative lifestyle and the relative affordability. If anchoring out gets elminated cruising will lose massive appeal. And I'm not just speaking from a budgetary/financial perspective. The freedom of being on the hook (free from shore, free from costs, free utilities, etc.) is truly rewarding for me.
