Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

Ahh, Labor Day weekend, hoping for a nice night on the water. Blakely Harbor, Bainbridge island, most boats are all settled down for the evening and then this huge SV Ayni motors all through the bay and out to the very mouth in front of everyone and anchors blocking the majority of boats view of the Seattle skyline.
Taken from an online search for this vessel: "Ayni is a 27m luxury sail super yacht built by Oyster". IMO the following should be added to the online description "and is crewed and skippered by some total arrogant impolite jerks."

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

Where did you expect a large vessel to anchor? They can't anchor close in.

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

In any of the multitude of other locations that were available that didn't block everyone's view! You are making the assumption that there wasn't anywhere else for them to be. I wouldn't have posted if that was the case.

Their draft isn't much more than many of the other boats that were there. No one was asking them to anchor "close in", just to use some politeness and courtesy.

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

A 27m vessel should be anchoring on the outside of the other smaller vessels.
Your argument sounds like the high end home owners in Florida who don't want their view disturbed by boats anchoring behind their house.

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

yup, I couldn't agree more. House in Florida, anchorage in PNW. Such a direct correlation. note sarcasm. You sound like someone who avoids my statement that there was plenty of room in more appropriate places, and changes the subject just to argue some more. And you start talking about Florida and home owners. Very similar, (yeah right)

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

The OP does prove that you don't have to be rich to feel very entitled.

I wonder if he considered the sightlines of all the other boats in the anchorage when he chose HIS spot?

Yup, sure did. I anchored right in front of a little motor boat on a mooring ball that looked like it hadn't had anyone onboard in weeks. I'm sure I blocked the sea gulls views on that boat. that were adding to the poop piles on it.

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

Well I've anchor well over 1,000 times and considering the view of others never made it high enough on the list of considerations to play into my drop location. Saftey of others, swinging room of my boat, competence of the other anchorers, weather, bottom conditions, they all were way further up the list. View of the city miles across the Sound, no.

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

Was it a pretty boat?

/maybe the owner thought you'd rather look at his nice boat instead of the dirty city

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

Personally Id have been thankful for someone blocking out as much light pollution as possible.

Its basic standard procedure for larger boats to anchor further out in a harbor. Kinda harsh to name and shame them on a public forum for following standard procedure.

You go out on the water and look TOWARDS the city? I always look to sea, I'll have to try that next time.

Paul, it is nice to hear from someone so experienced as yourself. And I appreciate the helpful comments which you have added to this post. However, Blakely, is a destination for exactly that purpose. i.e. The view, please see, Cruising Guide to the PNW, and the plethora of internet posts which make mention of this. So, the items which you mention yes of course, should always be taken into consideration by someone showing up at an anchorage; no argument there. However, this spot has that added consideration. And I mention those resources to back that statement up. I get the feeling that with you no matter what I say you will have a comeback with criticism attached. This vessel BTW, was already anchored in the back of the bay and it chose to re-anchor in the evening out in front of everyone at the opening of the bay.
If you are in Bellingham and have over 1000 anchorages under your belt I'm surprised you don't know this about this little spot south of you. Possibly our paths may cross, hopefully not our anchor lines, and I'm sure you will feel entitled to anchor right in front of me

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

Hey, it's Labor day weekend. I bet if you went there today, you'd have the whole bay to yourself...That's why I like to start my cruises the day after Labor Day
