(WCAX Vermont)   Purchasing secluded lakeshore property entitles you to demand that the unwashed masses sailing past in their yachts anchor elsewhere for the eve. Don't want riff raff to put on airs, not in MY bay. ~themoreyouknow.jpeg   (wcax.com) divider line

I just can't take anyone seriously if their boat is under 50' and they call it a yacht. I've acutally been given the silent treatment by a dude who called his 30-footer a "yacht" and I busted out laughing. Like...no. A yacht is for Bond villains and billionaires. If I could've been pressure washing it for $10 on a Sunday from a neighbour when I was a piteous broke teenager, then it isn't a yacht. Although "below decks" is always cool to say if you use a pirate voice.

Pfft.  This is an everywhere problem.

Something like this happened at a lakehouse a buddy's family owned in Wisconsin.  But worse because the asshole actually won.
 
2022-08-18 1:16:46 AM  
Ehh - kinda depends.  Someone rolls up, anchors down, and starts blasting loud shiat and partying all night and all morning long 60' from your back door that could get a little farking irritating.  If that happens on a constant basis?  Yeah that shiat would get old quick

Instead of asking people to keep the noise down she asks them to leave. Not a good way to get your message across.
 
2022-08-18 1:30:38 AM  
Asking people not to anchor nearby is a step way, waaaaay too far.

Asking people to keep the noise down is pretty damn reasonable if you ask me.  No different to asking your land based neighbours to do the same.

What this situation needs is someone with authority in a small boat who can be called to come out in the evening and read the riot act to a particular boat that being noisy.

A blanket demand to anchor elsewhere is going Full Karen and is only going to annoy people.

Sound travels over water. The red areas show where boats are anchored, the green area is where party boats should be required to anchor, so let it be written, so let it be done.

By which reasoning you would defund the police.  It is possible to have authority and be reasonable.

Ah, the good ol' English/French Canadian passive-aggressive note. I stayed at an AirBnB in Montreal and specifically looked for a place with an off-street parking space. After I parked in the designated space some dude went nuts and put increasingly deranged notes on it while I was at dinner. I came back and found 4 notes plastered on my car, the final one in ALL CAPS and Sharpie threatening to have my car towed.

There was no chill up there.

Two questions:

Are there any Christian temples on these shores that have yet to be plundered and defiled for the All Father's glory?

Are you hiring?

If the party boat people are being noisy, then I fully understand the demand that they anchor further away.

Oh dang, it'd be a shame if someone were to anchor offshore in the fog, making the required blasts on the horn as per the RoR.

The problem with asking people to keep the noise down when they're having a party is that it never works. I'm sure there's a name for the phenomena:

There's a house party that's getting too loud. The neighbor comes over and asks people to keep the noise down. The host apologizes, turns down the stereo, and tells everyone they need to keep it down; the neighbors are complaining. Then people keep drinking. Then someone's favorite song starts playing, and they need to turn up the stereo so they can let everyone they're talking to hear just how great this song is. Then everyone starts talking louder to talk over the music. Then the music gets turned up because nobody can hear the music over the talking. Then people start talking louder. Then the music gets turned up. Then people start talking louder, and the music gets turned up. And an hour later the cops are knocking on the door.

Just load the sunset gun with grape, round, chain, or cannister.  They'll get the message...especially if you use it for wadding.

It's not common, although it can be legal, for a person to own all  or part of a body of water that is affected by the action of tides.   Not only can't you own all or part of a tidal body of water, a strip of land measured from the high tide mark next to the body of water is considered property of the 'crown'.
