It is pretty, and cold right now. Like Tim says, it's two habors, inner and outer. It's a buzz in season.

We have a soft spot for it, we lived in the inner harbor for a summer while I built us some digs to live in over an old fish market on the harbor(a long story).

Our kids would swim right off the boat(when the harbormaster wasn't looking). We like to grab an inner float now and then. It's a fun little town and harbor, to sit and watch it all go by. We like it all.

We moved though, to a quieter town(and harbor), right next door.

Re: anchorage etiquette

Gorgeous shot, Tom.. beautiful country too. I think you downeasters and we BCers have a lot in common.. I'd love an opportunity to spend some time cruising Maine one day, cold or not, busy or not....

Re: anchorage etiquette

Thanks, Faster. I can't take credit for that shot but it's a typical one from nearby Mt Battie. You only see half of the inner harbor and a third of the outer in this photo.

I feel the same, I'd love to explore your area by sailboat. I have friends and relatives that live there. They don't ever speak of leaving, only how much they love it.

I know it's a beautiful place. There are too many for us to sail.

Re: anchorage etiquette

Someone mentioned the wind gens and I have to say that I've been annoyed by a squeaky wind gen about ten times more often than hearing a generator. Maybe 100 times.

If you are bothered, I admire someone who is willing to dinghy over and politely ask their neighbor to stop. If they won't stop, they are clearly a jerk. However, if they are not breaking any laws and you either accost them or damage their property, you should be arrested. Their is zero justification for breaking the law, just to get your way, in a civilized society.

Re: anchorage etiquette

Just wanna say sorry to the poor fellow whom had to consume the black smoke from my old tired W50 during his breakfast time! I swear that his anchoring so close to us well after us in his huge 50' Sea Ray and running his genset all night to power his equally huge flat screen TV had nothing to do with warming up our engine prior to departure for 10 minutes

Maybe. There is also the law of "2 Dudes" which has alway's trumped the law of the county. The Law of 2 dudes is an unspoken, law, known by all us "Dudes ". You can get smacked out here in the world, it may be against the "law " of the town you are in, but it's a very real law which regardless of your veiws, you are subject to.
There is an unspoken undersatnding amongst all of us, that if you act a ceratin way or say certain things there is a good chance you'll get smacked in one way or another by some dude who does'nt put up with crap. It's like jumping off the bridge above hidden creek in the Key's is illegal, but we've alway's jumped off it, and once you've jumped, you can't escape the law of gravity.

Re: anchorage etiquette

I would have more respect for someone trying to take a swing at me than sneaking over and damaging my things like a coward. I'm good with the two Dude rule and I'm very familiar with the less civilized world.

It's never going to come to that over my genset or anything else anyone would politely suggest was bothering them anyway. I'm a pretty good neighbor.

Re: anchorage etiquette

saw a interesting listing for a V50 still in the shed at manufactor. Guy put a bunch of extra AGMs in the place where the genset would go. Figured that would carry him through when the sun don't shine and the wind don't blow. Like the idea of two house banks. Just saying.

The only works to a certain extent. You still have to charge them. Maybe good for a weekend where he returns to a slip for recharging.

Re: anchorage etiquette

I agree that deliberate property damage is not defensible, but neither is such utter ignorance/arrogance as to be that disrespectful as others.

I don't condone that fellow sinking the dinghy with the generator (if it's not simply a non-urban legend), but by G I understand the temptation!..
