I sail a Catalina 27 from West River in Maryland. In the anchorage area near my slip there was an orange cat 27 anchored. I never saw anyone on it or never saw it sailing. Then one weekend I noticed it had moved its anchor spot. I didn't think much of it at the time. Then a few weeks later I was out and it was not very close to where I keep my boat. It was near the shoal to the entrance to the slip area. No big deal... I s=went out and when i returned i asked a neighbor (this is a private dock area) and he told me it wasn't anchored, it was aground. He told me the DNR (Dept of Natural Resources) had been notified. Later that weekend, I noticed it was gone! It seems the DNR located the owner and notified him that he had to move the boat. He did not. So they towed it to a safe sate facility. He would be charged.
