Vancouver Island Mooring Buoys

Vancouver Island:

The Bay I would like to Moore my Boat in has numerous Mooring Buoys and almost no more room to set another one with enough swing room.

Several liveonboarders in this Bay "own" 3 or 4 of these Mooring Buoys and rent them out to others for cash by the month, I doubt they pay taxes on this Busines venture.

What are the legalities of doing so. How many Mooring Buoys can a single person own in the same Bay and prevent others from using the space.

Thank you all for your input-------Cheers

There are no rules. ,This is the reply I got from Transport Canada and who to contact with your concerns, The more complaints the better . Most of the people with mooring balls littering anchorages are not "liveaboards". With any hope we will soon see the end of this problem.

This is not illegal per sé but we will be contacting the fellow to advise the buoys do not conform strictly to the Private buoy regulations or the current TC policy on placement of mooring buoys for private use and that we will be identifying areas where mooring buoys are restricted and conducting an enforcement program in Tsehum hbr. (as well as other problem areas) this spring. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

That's annoying, but they do own the moorings. I would just install your own right next to theirs. It would be bad seamanship for anyone to hook up to a mooring with a circle overlapping yours. If your boat is there when they show up!

Thank you for your replys. It is unfortunate that we have to ask for more regulations and enforcement but there almost seems no way arround that anymore.

Cheers
