"In BC ,those who put out moorings have no legal rights to them."
How very curious, and contrary to our common British common-law heritage. Here in the US if you "find" something that belongs to someone else, perhaps a tent that has been left pitched in the woods, it still belongs to the original owner and if you don't get out when he asks you, you've escalated the class of trespassing charge. If you pick it up and say "I found it, finder's keepers" that doesn't apply either. Over a certain low dollar value, there's laws about that too.

Methinks the Mounties might disagree with you, Brett. Along with some other folks with official mandates.
