Ive had an issue out on anchor a few times with people going aboard my boat. Headed out to the boat one afternoon to find a 18'~ centre console tied up behind my boat with 3 people sitting in the cockpit. Figured id screw with them, so i pulled along side and asked if they were the owners of the boat. They said they were buddys of the owner and he let them tie up for a bit to get out of the sun. I told them they needed to call the owner since the boat had drug anchor and almost hit "my" boat the night before. After a few minutes of them trying to give a reason why they couldnt call i let them know im the owner of the boat and if i ever saw them aboard my boat, or any boat in the anchorage i would call the police/dnr/cg. Still havent seen that little boat around.
One of the other times, i didnt catch the person onboard, but a buddy that lives on another boat near by cought them. It wasnt a big deal, turns out it was another guy in the anchorage that had his gennerator quit, he brought over a few gallons of gas, his charger and battery, plugged in and fired off my genny to charge up. Turns out he had slipped a note and a $20 through the vent in my door. Too bad he didnt just call the phone number written under the vent on the door.
