A common courtesy amongst cruisiers is extended to a new arrivel in an anchorage. If they go below shortly after arriving without putting the topsides in order, DONOT approach the boat until they reappear in the cockpit. Wait until they are sitting in their cockpit with a cup of coffee in hand.

Trust me on this folks.

Re: zeehag on the Move

John is right. also...

If you see there is a couple, and she is driving the boat and he drops the anchor and they dig in. Then she goes below after turning off the engine...and he walks around a bit not doing anything...then goes and checks the anchor by pulling on it a few times...then she comes up...and he says something to her...and her arms wave around a bit and she shakes her head...and he says something else with his arms out with a "wha?" on his face...and she goes down below...and he goes to the companionway and says something more which really wasnt necessary...and there is more noise below...and the sound of something crashing...and then she comes out and he goes to the bow...and she starts the engine...and he lets out some more achor line...actually MUCH MUCH more scope for the depth or weather conditions than EVER necessary for these poor water which takes up more swinging room for other poor tired yachts coming in the lagoon...and she REVS the engine and pulls the boat backwards to get a dig...n then goes below...

DO NOT APPROACH THIS BOAT FOR ANY REASON WHAT SO EVER!

BE PREPARED TO MOVE QUICKLY

DO NOT LOOK THEN IN THE EYESS!!!AZZZ

or....

take a risk tomorrow by approaching them ON LAND ONLY! (to bring up swinging issues )

Boy have I been there.
You are either very observant, or you are doing a deja vu.

Re: zeehag on the Move

I should also advise that if you decide to approach them on LAND to bring up anchoring methodology, please consider using the following NEW ENGLAND technique:

1) Get the male species alone so they are less dangerous and more vunerable.
2) Administer 3 rounds of jello shots and/or one jello shot + boiler maker
3) Do some Karioki between each
4) THEN bring up the ahcnoring issues...
