This is from last night. We are anchored in one of our favorite spots in Little Harbor off Peter Island BVI. We always take the end spot so the boat can swing a bit and catch what little wind
is here for cooling
. Further into the cove, other boats (99 percent cats while we're a mono) tie off on shore while anchored.
So, late in the day a big 50 plus cat (A2) comes in and squeezes in between us and our nearest neighbor, but is right within our scope
if the wind
happened to change from a squall we'd hit them for sure. My husband was sick and sleeping downstairs but he did see it when he woke up. He figured if we swung into during the night it'd just be their fault as he wasn't in a mood for argument being sick.
Well, this morning A2 did move to another spot cause we did swing around toward them a bit. They did their move with the dirty looks and pictures of our boat like we were at fault here because we weren't tied off or something.
So, what's the etiquette here? We were set here a couple days before they showed with no problems. We leave enough scope
to be comfortable. Are we expected to get shore line and tie off like most others? Or, should they just reapect our scope and stay out?
