Re: Opposition to liveaboards

In BC ,those who put out moorings have no legal rights to them. I simply pick up any mooring I find, give her a good shot of reverse, and if it holds, use it. If no one gives me any problem , I feel a bit of an obligation to clean a bit of the growth off it, and,if I plan to use it again, I put some reflector tape on it, so I can find it easily at night, thus leaving it in better condition than I found it in.

If the owner tries to hassle me, I tell him to get lost ,and ignore him.
You can tell when it was last used, by the amount of growth on it, especially the pickup line
