Re: What do I do if someone anchors too close?

Can you post pictures. Id call a LEO and get a report. Do you have his information. I would also get statements from those anchored close.

3:1 is a little short scoped- are you SURE you didn't move?
3;1 is fine for a lunch hook, but overnight, when not keeping a regular anchor watch?
Too short.

They are not top quality pictures. I was too busy fending to get anything too good.

Re: What do I do if someone anchors too close?

I'd call the USCG or water police, get the other boat's insurance info and proceed exactly as you would in an auto crash. Get a quote on proper repairs by a quality yard and contact your insurer to handle everything. That's what you pay them for.
Good luck.

I would for sure call USCG or LEO and get a report filed, it's really BS, not that he hit your boat (things happen) but his attitude is completely unacceptable...
