Do you think wind chimes belong on a boat in an anchorage or marina? The noise drives me nuts, but maybe I''m the only one.

You are NOT the only one. When I was living on board those Da**able noise makers drove me nuts. Not as much as the neighbor''s halyards banging against thier masts when the wind came up but I would vote for wind chimes second.

Check the marina rules. If they are not addressed see if the marina would add wind chimes to the "Not Allowed " list, just like no grilling at the dock, which many marinas do not allow.

I don''t have them, and I understand and respect all the rules at the marina, but I have to confess, the sound of rigging "ringing" in the wind and the sound of chimes is actually pleasing to me...it''s at night when I hear that sound that I remember what first drew me to the water...

Sorry gang....

Fair winds,

"Ringing" in the rigging depends on your distance from the "offender" and time of day. All afternoon the haylards slapping a mast can be a welcome natical sound. At 03:00 early when the boat next to you is doing it and you have to get up for work the next morning can be overwhelming. So be a good guys and tie off your external haylards..

Halyards and such should not be "ringing". It is careless, disrespectful to the ship, and poor seamanship to have banging and clanging rigging. (Not to mention rude and inconsiderate towards your neighbors.)

The wind whistling through tight, cared for rigging is another topic.

The inventor of wind chimes should be hung in the rigging or keelhauled.

A marina I was in a few years ago organized a "Halyard Patrol". First offense brought bungee cords to secure the offender''s rigging. Second offense brought old cord tied tightly. Third offense brought duct tape!!

That usually took care of the problem.
