Everything is copyrighted. You can still make "fair use" of it. Linking the picture, without copying the entire article (which is interesting and certainly worth reading) would clearly fall under "fair use."

Very scary, imagine all these yachts anchoring near yours reducing beautiful bay to parking ground with loose fanons, sorry anchors that can drag anytime towards you. Not to mention the noise of the gensets, parties.... you know

Re: 100s of Charterboats All In A Row

THIS IS NOT AN ANCHORAGE, IT IS A WINTER HURRICANE HOLE ON TORTOLA CALLED PARAQUITA BAY. YOU MUST PAY A YEAR IN ADVANCE TO RESERVE A SPOT AND BE A PAID MEMBER ONE OF THE YACHTING ASSOCIATIONS (I HAVE FORGOTTEN WHICH ONE).

THE GOVERNMENT HAS INSTALLED VERY HEAVY CONCRETE MOORING ANCHORS IN A VERY ORGANIZED ROW.

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PLACE CAR TIRES OR VERY LARGE FENDERS ALONG EACH SIDE OF YOUR VESSEL.

TWO x 1 INCH (2.25 CM) LINES MUST GO FROM ALL 4 CLEATS TO THE SUBMERGED MOORING ANCHORS.

THE BAY IS SHALLOW = APPROXIMATELY 6 FEET WITH A ONE FOOT TIDE, AND PROTECTED FROM THE SEA BY A SHALLOW REEF FOLLOWED BY A ROW OF MANGROVES.

THERE IS ONLY ONE VERY SHALLOW ENTRANCE ABOUT 6 FEET DEEP AND 30 FEET WIDE. MOST MONOHULLS USUALLY MUST ENTER AT HIGH TIDE.

THERE ARE VIRTUALLY NO SWELLS EVER IN PARAQUITA BAY EVEN IN FORCE 5 HURRICANES. NO ONE IS PERMITTED TO STAY ABOARD THEIR YACHTS DURING A HURRICANE AND THERE IS A PARK RANGER WHO CHECKS THAT YOU MEET THE MOORING REQUIREMENTS. THOSE LINED BEHIND THE MANGROVES USE 2 LINES ON EACH BOW CLEAT TIED TO THE MANGROVES.

I HAD A RESERVED SPOT IN FRONT OF THE MANGROVES PRE-PAID FOR 9 YEARS IN ADVANCE.

IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO PURCHASE A SPOT AS A RESULT OF THE LARGE NUMBER OF CHARTER YACHTS THAT USE IT.

HI Ron
Thanks for the great info.
On the internet, it is considered poor etiquette to type everything in capitals in a conversation, almost akin to shouting.
A lot of people dont know so just passing the tip on..

Thanks again for explaining the situation out there.
