Re: Opposition to liveaboards

No one has the right to exclude you from using an anchorage by installing a mooring buoy in it. Thus you have every right to do whatever it takes to use the anchorage, including using the mooring buoy, if that is your choice. You are not obligated to remove a bouy in order to use the public anchorage.
Thank god I live in Canada, where things are not as legally, childishly nitpicky, as they are in the US.
