My mooring in this scenario is legal, but Chef is denied use of his.
I know this is a hypothetical, but that would just make you a real jackwad.
In your scenario, you're not happy that Chef got to place a mooring, but presumably he hasn't violated any laws or regs. You're just not happy he beat you to it, so you go picking a fight. The civil approach is to see if the owner of the seabed (municipality) is willing to change the rules. If not, leave the moorings alone.
