Vessel operators should always be considerate of other vessel operators even when stopping to anchor or moor.
Keep in mind that it is illegal to:
- Anchor a vessel in the traveled portion of a river or channel that will prevent or interfere with any other vessel passing through the same area.
- Moor or attach a vessel to a buoy, beacon, light, or any other navigational aid placed on public waters by proper authorities. Also, it is illegal to move, displace, tamper with, damage, or destroy any navigational aid.
- Obstruct a pier, wharf, boat ramp or access to any facility.
