That's true< I lost my boat twice to yard's. had to borrow to get it back. The only insurance. I've ever had was good anchors , common sense, caution, and decent luck. Mind you my boat has sunk twice and knocked off it's stands in huricane Wilma. I anchor for free, except for the year spent at Miami beach Marina back in 1993 when it was 350 a month and some DYI live aboard yards, I've been on the hook for free. I have no systems so that makes it cheap.
