From what I read HERE, it says:

I've read this whole thread in hopes of finding information on getting a permit for a permanent mooring here in NC. I didn't want to start a new thread without asking here first. Just for the record... we own the property it would be in front of. Can anyone point me in the right direction for the permit application?

What to do when you find a derelict boat?
I don't know, but there are mulitple scenarios of how and where a boat is considered to be derelict. So, there is likely no single solution, and nothing worth while is ever simple. It'll take sustained level of procativity. I believe the techncial term is "nagging."
What will the Coast Guard or DNR do with boats that are merely reported as ...
"may be adrift"
"may be dragging its anchor?"
"suspected of leaking oil/fuel into the water system?"
... what are their obligations on these reports?
I'd LIKE to think that it would start an official event history on that hull, so that it can eventually be seized or hauled away. Maybe I'm being naive, but several reports from different boaters about a problem boat can't be ignored for long. (The squeeky wheel gets replaced.) It is a fact, however, that passive acceptance and complaining to nobody in particular accomplishes little.
“If you nag people enough, work becomes the course of least resistance.”

"What will you do when you see a derelict boat at anchor nearby?"
Put an ad on Craig's List for "FREE BOAT, MUST VACATE MOORING IMMEDIATELY".

"i disagree with the its my house i own the view outlook, but this is a community we live in and people need to respect the rights of others. we need perhaps to police ourselves more and be proactive in the erosion of our anchoring rights"
The $64 million question is, how do we 'police ourselves'?
What will you do when you see a derelict boat at anchor nearby? And who's definition of 'derelict' will you be using?

|sharia||I joined just so i could reply to this thread. I live aboard in Annapolis with my partner and 7 year old. We live aboard because we like to sail and we like the lifestyle, and it affords us the opportunity to live on the water without making a lot of money, ( i earn about $15 an hour) we have cruised in the past and will do so again in a year or two. We live on a 45 foot sloop that is by no means derelict, nor would it be the model in a Ralph Lauren photo shoot, its a working boat, its well taken care of, cleaned and waxed and painted and polished,we sail every weekend and sometimes in the middle of the week. We live in a marina because we have the facilities here that allow us to live softly. Here on back creek there have been a number of " derelict" boats that the harbormaster cleared out last year, and well he should have, there was often no one living permanently on board, they were an eyesore , and everytime the wind blew up they drifted into other boats, they did not use the pump outs, they held loud drinking parties etc etc etc. I am all for free anchoring rights, and think it is a great shame that our rights are being infringed upon because of the acts of a few people. If we lived in an apartment my neighbor would not have the right to create a disturbance that affected me, why should boaters be any different? i disagree with the its my house i own the view outlook, but this is a community we live in and people need to respect the rights of others. we need perhaps to police ourselves more and be proactive in the erosion of our anchoring rights, yes its unfair that the wealthy have better access to anything, including politicians, but thats the way it is, has always been. my view is that you should keep your boat in a seaworthy state, just as your neighbor should keep their house, it costs money, sometimes everything i earn, but i knew that going in, 10 years ago. live in the community, if the community does not fit in with your ideals, move, thats why you own a boat!|

Bottom land and crab pots
Does anyone have examples of how local laws (state of otherwise) affect where one can set crab pots? It would seem that if there are restrictions on setting an anchor in the mud that it would also apply to the horde of these crab pots I find myself dodging.
I thought that fisherman could just throw these anywhere except in a marked channel.

I've been told that the "bulkhead line" which appears on nautical charts of Manhattan (NYC) delimits the point to which piers can be constructed--and also the point at which the private ownership of the BOTTOM as wel as the use of the water ends. Inside of the bulkhead line (to which most of the piers were built out to) you're on private land--even if it's water.
Or, the locals do a good job of pretending it is that way. < g >
Then again, Manhattan's south tip was extended so far by landfill into the water, that it practically doubled the width of the island. The WTC was only the last of many "fills".
