no way?

I can see leaving the plotter running.... the track will show where the boats been swinging.... or dragging to. I leave it on for hours until I am comfortable that no dragging has occurred.

Re: Rules regarding long term anchoring/mooring

The track route function on the Navionics app on my cell phone does the same thing.....and itís nice to be able to check to see if the anchor is dragging without dragging myself out of my bunk to go look at the chartplotter....

Bad advice .....you cannot TOUCH his boat or his tackle or thatís actually trespassing.
Since the water is 41 degrees now, I doubt your going to get wet, so donít touch this boaters set up.

Follow through with talking to the boat owner. Thatís your best course of action.

Iíve kept my boat in AA County for 22 years.
a. Yes, you are right, he didn't mention the boat.

b. No, I did not mention touching his anchor tackle or his boat, I said investigate. And getting wet is not a big deal if you dress for it. I wouldn't think much of it, if it was important to me.

c. Once he has touched the pier, that is prima facia evidence he is dragging. He is also trespassing at that point. Salvage rules probably apply, but for certain involving local law enforcement is appropriate. What is legal and prudent will depend on many factors (wind, damage, likely future). But you may be stuck with a junk boat at that point. Which is the reason for "b;" to determine if there is a serious situation.

Once a boat is provably dragging, I'm not so sure touching it is trespass. It is out of control and about to become a hazard.

Re: Rules regarding long term anchoring/mooring

Hopefully he will get back to us on the results of either contacting the owner or LE.

There is a constant ďbattleĒ between owners of property on many of the small creeks and people anchoring in front of their land property.

My friends and I have had numerous encounters from homeowners who have either called out from their banks or come out in a kayak or dinghy asking is our intentions after we have anchored. We of course donít try and get within a resasonable proximity and prefer not being close, however sometimes circumstances dictate us anchoring safely but the landowner not understanding and making a fuss.

For some reason they believe we are ruining their view. Itís not like we are a nuisance but they feel they spent a lot of money for the house with a view and that means a boat anchored in front ruins it. Like I posted earlier a few we have seen have gone so far as putting fake moorings in front of their properties.

Of course to a transient they will ignore the area, but to some else who passes by never seeing a boat on the mooring is a tell tale to its purpose.

Hopefully this poster does not fit this description. Time will tell whether he gives us a report.

Me too, always in the Broad Creek area. I've been asked to move when I was 50-100 feet from a dock. Once I did, because I had decided I did not like the location anyway. The other I did not, because there was a storm starting to rumble. Other times, as you say, I was only asked whether I was staying. I smiled and gave a non-committal answer.

Re: Rules regarding long term anchoring/mooring

I suppose if anchored (too) close a homeowner may feel:

loss/invasion of privacy
concern for the dock or bulkhead
their view has been spoiled
navigation issues with their own boat

Moving a bit further may or may not mitigate their concerns.

How close is too close and what is a reasonable distance?

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

Yes way. My anchor alarm is an iPad app, so I donít need to leave the plotter on. I will also take a screen pic, when I feel I may need to show exactly where I was at any point in time. The screen shows date and time.

My old iPad app, which is longer longer supported, would allow me connect to my iPad aboard, from my cell phone ashore, and see the swing lines. My latest app will simply send my an alarm, if the boat drags outside a zone that I customize.

The tech should be a backup to proper anchoring, but itís darn cool.
