Agreed Andre.
I should note that the anchorage concerned, though in Sydney Harbour is usually empty or down to a couple of boats 5 days out of seven and even in summer will only have half a dozen boats on a weekend.
What it comes down to then is that rules say first in best dressed and etiquette is close by that. Maybe consideration for others is a different matter.
The "throw out 100m of chain into 10m of water" type is just as much of a nuisance but again rules and etiquette are in their favour though I guess thats better than the 1:1 scopers.

bacampbe is on a distinguished road
Out of curiosity, when we say the "rule" says the first one dictates the rule--where is that rule written down? Isn't it more a matter of generally accepted etiquette? In which case, we have the boater etiquette that the first to anchor wins, and the general etiquette of "don't be an ass". To me that would mean that I, as the second to arrive, have no reason to expect him to change. But he, as the first to arrive, has every opportunity to decide to change, if for no other reason than just to be friendly.

Or is the first to arrive rule actually matter of regulation?

I'd think from a rule point of view it is simply a matter of avoiding a collision. If you swing into another boat that was already anchored when you arrived then I'd be guessing that legally that would be in the right.
