Is he anchored too close?

I came in here in the afternoon and picked a spot with a good distance between other anchored boats.
Later a boat came in, and instead of anchoring away from the farthest boat, he took a spot between us.
Is this too close? There is about 150' to him.

He is not even close...We just put out fenders as we welcome other cruisers and invite them over for a beer!

Re: Is he anchored too close?

Have a look at this vid for how to fix the problem. The video is only 17 seconds long.

(Actually you are fine, he is miles away)

Yeah I realize that now, I might just be a little "uptight" with this. Anyway, it seems to be a very very quiet night around here, and his anchor gear seems to be superior. Not that I want to get into that...

If anyone wants to have a look, here is my trip.
I know the KEEP SAILING thing is in Danish, but you might get a clue anyway
