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:

  • Moor or attach a vessel to a buoy, beacon, light, or any other navigational aid placed on public waters by proper authorities.
  • Move, displace, tamper with, damage, or destroy any navigational aid.
  • Interfere with the passage of large, deep-draft vessels which can navigate safely only inside such channels.
