For instance, when hunting, and you leave your tree stand/blind on public land just because its yours doesn't mean your the only one who can use it. Etiquette dictates you shouldn't but the law says you may.

Confusing issue for sure.

Whats confusing about it, it seems simple to me...lets substitute the name of your boat for the mooring apparatus.

If I anchor KIVALO... I paid for her in fact, own Her. However I do not own the water-space or real estate my "anchor" sits on.
Correct

So do you find it confusing if you anchor your boat and I came along and decided to hang out on it. Would that disturb you?

The answer is self evident I think.
