Never saw so many anchor bouys that they were a problem. I've found it very handy to know where their anchor is. It gives me an idea of their scope and swing. If the anchorage is so tight that all boats must swing in unision then I move on. I'm not that good a sailor, or neighbour, so maybe I just never find myself in those anchorages. Or maybe I just do not use a bouy when it might get run over so it just seems like it is not a problem.
The main problem I see is not anchor bouys, but crab pots. They can be everywhere.
Anchor bouys seem to be a good idea. Clearly the line used should be more than just a string, unless you plan to dive down to get the anchor.
Have faith that the oceans are going to rise and flood the world, that plague and pestilence brought on by Climate Change is going to punish us for not believing. Please do as they say it is our only hope. :P
