Article on Sausalito anchor-outs

I though someone might find this interesting :

As more ‘anchor-outs’ live on SF Bay, tension mounts on land - San Francisco Chronicle

Re: Article on Sausalito anchor-outs

I was just there last week and did not see more then the usual amount of anchor outs. I thought there were fewer there actually as there is more space between many of the boats.

Sausalito enforcement is related to areas west of the channel. Area's east of the channel are outside Sausalito's jurisdiction, per the RBRA.

For all the anchorouts the water is surprisingly clear, you can see eal grass at low tide, there is tons of wild life (fish, sealions, birds) so it seems fine.

Until the city sewage plant overflows, again.

Re: Article on Sausalito anchor-outs

funny how many equate appearance group with seaworthiness. i saw only a couple of near derelict looking not go to ocean type boats in the mix. cluttered decks only mean cruiser. not necessarily lack of seaworthiness. stuff on deck gets lashed before sailing time.
the dirty waterline from overflow of city sewage systems...
there is always a direct look at boats when the city officials want to cut pollution, as the city officials forget conveniently there is an issue with the city sewage not with the few boats in anchorages.

Root of the problem, they're nonconformists. Pretty simple, & quite sad. Imagine what life would be like if everyone lived, & thought the same way.


BTW, that article is 3 months old.

Hum why is being a non-conformist, which most cruisers, are. I for one am quite happy there are all sorts in the world.

But I might be a Non-conformist too....

Did not see the blue boat on the mooring last week and I passed right by that area too. Yes there are some trashy boats, but many, well over half are not.

Re: Article on Sausalito anchor-outs

I don't have an issue with the two boats that are "cluttered". The one with the oil slick is an obvious issue (IMO).

With that said I've followed the "tiny home" movement for a lot of years. I always wonder about those that live with cluttered outward appearances. How much trouble from the normal people in the system it attracts, where if you just organized stuff or covered it with a tarp the hassle would go away.
