What the devil does the fact that they are Canadian have to do with it? Are you suggesting that other nationalities never anchor too close? You don't own the anchorage and since you did not say that there was ever any contact or damage I assume that your unwanted neighbour put up with your rudeness and that there was never any actual problem.

Keep your nationalistic slurs to yourself.

So what is wrong with setting up a portable trap launcher, putting a few clay pigeons in it, yelling "PULL!!" and letting a couple of shots go from the "protection instrument"????

Got to go with Bash on this one...

I'm guilty of that myself. If I don't know much about where I'm going, and I see someone that I think has been there for a while, I'll anchor near them by default. But 15' (or even 50') is a bit on the close side. I'd try to keep at least 50' away and if it was pretty obvious or I had a good chart book telling me where to park I'd go further.

gps gives the depths of the region in which you plan to anchor..even has the basic topography of the bottom so is easy to anchor more than on top of others. also has the stuff of which the bottom is made written on the screen... there really isnt any rational excuse for anchoring on top of anyone anymore.
if you can smell my
coffee
deodorant
cat's farts
then yer tooo close.

No doubt Zee, I had no confusion as to your gender!

I was referring to the gender opposite of ME! If you ever anchor up on this side of the wheat field, I'll share an anchorage with ya! Hell, I'll even put out fenders!

What's the problem? It's called SAFETY, when rude and ignorant people anchor within your swing radius when there's miles of places to anchor, the safety factor diminishes.

I had some dumb %$$ anchor about 20-25' in a river one day in my other boat which had a steel hull, full keel and a big rudder. About 1 kt. flow in the river. Went to the wheel and turned it slightly so my boat eased over a little closer to them and they actually figured it out on their own that they might be a little to close. Has an anchor out abreast of my boat so I would stay off the bank. Great way to get rude neighbors to move. We were the only boat in about a 3 mile stretch of river.
