Next thing you know, you'll be prevented from anchoring within 500 yards of a mooring field, for fear of dragging into them.
On that note

Some of the houseboats' most vocal opponents live on Angus Drive, whose large million-dollar homes have unobstructed views of the bay. "I don't like looking down every day at that," said Angus Drive resident Steve Smith, adding that the effect of the houseboats on his view is driving down his property value. As far as he is concerned, the boat owners are essentially squatters who are taking away from other people's ability to enjoy the bay.
