I like this technique, but would be concerned of having to register as a sex offender if the neighbor decided to call LEO instead of move. How far offshore to I have to be to legally flash the neighbor's kids?

If all else fails, just fart loudly in their general direction!

I don't cruise so I don't have a horse in this race but I do have lots of music in my iPod that would work to repel a family that anchored too close.

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

Maybe I've been lucky. The one time someone was dropping the hook too close and thought they were fine I proceeded to obviously video them in the process of anchoring. Next I asked them to please face the camera so that when my insurance carrier goes after them for the damage their boat will cause by anchoring too close, there won't be any doubt as to which vessel was anchored first or who the Capt was. They went below for a few minutes, came out and motioned that I was "number one" before picking up their anchor and leaving the bay. Persons on another boat that also verbalized their displeasure during the anchoring fiasco applauded a little too zealously as the offending vessel departed.

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

I have to say that I love the stern tie anchoring that I'm finding in BC. It solves a lot of these problems because boats stay in place. I wish it were the norm in WA, but it's not really compatible with our private waterfront.

I personally prefer the culture on Lopez to San Juan Island. Everything is a little slower and more laid back, the scenery is better (Shark Reef Park and Spencer Spit being my two examples) and there are a lot fewer tourists in the village, because the village isn't right next to the ferry terminal. The new grocery store on Lopez is quite good too.

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

Funny thing that some humans have a need to be so close. Not anchoring but another story of a deserted beach at one of the Greek isles. After putting down the beach towels to soak up the sun another couple showed up. Despite having a mile of empty beach they came right up and sat next to us. ???
