I in no way support the right of "derelict boats", nor am I against reasonable measures being taken, on any level, to deal with them. Key words there being reasonable and them.

I know you don't John. You are one of the responsible boaters and a pleasure to have on the water. I hope my comments were not misconstrued to your views. I actually agree with you... and see the other side too.

CD, You are most welcome, but please, understand this.

If you bring a Catalina, you will be treated like the guy that lives on someone's front waters!!! ehehehehe We have laws for water pollution!!!

As for the wine, my suggestion is drink it before getting here!!!

We have a similar problem here (not so much as in Spain and South France) with the Gypsies, not on water but in land. They just park anywhere, but leave after a few months.

Giu,

Obviously, you have no taste Giu. I was actually thinking about entering my Catalina in the Americas Cup and bringing the cup back home. I am sure to win, but need a crew. Any takers?

CD, I have changed my mind.

Please bring the Catalina, my son said he need competition for his Optimist!!

By the way, my son Fred received his Portuguese Sailing Federation Racing permit (he just turned 9 !!). He had blood sampled and all, just like the big guys!!

He will go full International in Optimist next year!! I'am so happy, he is too!! Guess I need to buy him a new boat, now!

Giu,

That is awesome!! Keep it going. So you going to buy him a Catalina? Is that what you were leading up to?

He would love that!!! For now he can have fun in MY boat!!

By the way, he sails the big boat better than many adults I have seen. Sometimes, after school I go sailing with him, I do sails and trim and he does the steering. He can really really do it, like a grown up, tells me when to tack, if the rudder is "bitting", and one day actually told my wife that he wasn't sure I knew what I was doing (we all laughed).

I bet he would love the Catalina.

As for anchoring forever anywhere you like? What are you high?

Stop and think for a second. Let's just say you actually worked for a living or maybe even hit the lottery. So now you own the big house on the hill overlooking the perfect bay. Yes, you love to look at the beautiful boats anchored for the weekend. But then some "No-Eat" floating homeless guy anchors his 22 foot outboard engined wreck and starts hanging his laundry all over the outside of the boat. Then you start hearing loud music piping out while he is partying with his other "liveaboard buddies." You try to do something about it but you realize he has a "PO" box and no other fixed address. Two years later after tolerating noise, dumping of raw sewage into the creek, the eyesore that is his boat, trash floating onto your property...you call your Congressman or State Representative.

That is the reality here folks. We are not talking about people sailing through who anchor for a week or even a month.

What would you do if you had the property overlooking the wreck?

Excuse me but I would just like to call "********" here. The owner of the property doesn't own the view. Public waterways are public property, maintaintained by public funds. If the waterfront land owners don't like the view - they can build a fence. They aren't entitled to assess global laws to control property they don't own.

In the case of the derrilict boat owner, that should be addressed on a case by case basis - not by institituing global anchoring laws that affect ALL boaters. If the offensive boater is violating environmental or other laws, then punish him. Taking away rights of all boat owners is not the appropriate solution.
