Re: Mooring bouys

One should be careful pushing for legislation to address this issue. Those "Faberge' daysailors" can make a safety argument and point to the investment they made in their property. They probably make an investment in their local government representatives campaign fund too. Next thing you know, you'll be prevented from anchoring within 500 yards of a mooring field, for fear of dragging into them.
