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

I think I'm learning not to anchor in Friday Harbor near you! Why not go to Fisherman's Bay on Lopez? It's a nicer island anyway...

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

Lol. Funny you should say that! I went there two days ago! But friday harbor is more fun. It just got really crowded on the 4th. Whoa whoa whoa. Lopez over San Juan, its not even close. San Juan by a long shot. Fishermans is good but these summer southerlies funnel straight in there. It was blowing 15-20 yesterday afternoon stronger in the bay than once I got out. I put a reef I nbefore I left but it wasn't needed.

Did I tell you about the day before someone came and laid their 200 feet of chain on top of my anchor and then swung around me pulling up my anchor? I came back and the guy was on his boat and waved me over. He was actually really nice by the way. He said he snagged my anchor and every time he tried to retrieve his he pulled our boats together. So he was waiting for me to come back and I fended the boats apart as he pulled up his anchor. I had to untie my bitter end and walk on his bow and untwist my rode. Then he reanchored elsewhere.

Don't come near me.

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

This has been a very informative thread to read regarding anchor etiquette. I would guess that there are many like me here who only day sail and race, but do, on occasion, cruise. Since I virtually never need to anchor because I generally stick to harbors, I have never even read about the subject. What are the general rules of thumb when it comes to anchoring in, say, a protected anchorage? How much chain/rode is necessary for a 30' boat, and so on. If there is a thread already outlining this, please link it. I never knew any of these rules, so that would put me in the dumb category. I have anchored, but there was only one boat nearby.
