Indeed! The VIEW? It wouldn't even occur to me, to think about that.


Did the OP maybe consider moving himself, to get the view he wants?


Being angry, defeats the purpose of cruising! Be happy; chill out. An anchorage is not real estate! It's just a spot where you put your anchor down, just for a while, and there are lots more of them.

We visited Blakely many times from our home in Olympia. The tourist books might list the view as a visitor attraction. But the quiet harbor and the deer on the shore were always what we enjoyed. If we wanted to be close to the city, we would anchor in Eagle Harbor (free) near the Winslow Ferry or get a slip at Shilshole Marina (expensive).
Some skippers do unthinking and even obnoxious things, like leaving an engine running all night so their TV works. (grin) But they are doing it from ignorance rather than malice.
Respectfully - I am sorry your evening was ruined. I hope you have better days.

Good plan. Can you recommend where to find this boat? Talk about a crowded anchorage.

Great comment Mike, it truly amazes me what people find to argue about !! IMHO the view is improved vastly by having a Yacht like that in it

Agreed. With a respectable journal like this, I'd assume the editors meant exactly what they wrote

As an aside, someone better call the police on this Ray person. Clearly thereís a few missing people from her family. Iíd look in the freezer .

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

Nice pic of S/V Ayni. That tall stick must have blocked a lot of the view of the usual cloud cover over the area all the time. I'd be pissed about that too.

Re: Blakely Harbor SV Ayni rich jerks

If it was that much of an issue why didn't you just relocate to a place with a better view.? At least the captain didn't try to park that monster in the middle of all the small boats. Good seamanship?

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."
Surely you cannot be serious. Did this mega yacht neglect to lower sails?
