Illegally Parked Sailboats Towed Away

Nope, you can't drop anchor anywhere you please.


ALAMEDA, CA — Just like you can't park your car anywhere you please, you can't drop anchor with your sailboat anywhere you get the urge, either.


The Alameda Police Department had three sailboats towed away that were illegally anchored in the Oakland-Alameda Estuary.

The boats were spotted during routine marine patrols. APD contacted the owners and asked them to move the boats. Citations followed, along with 30-day move-it-or-else notices. The boats were finally towed on Wednesday.

Ahoy! New to sosailize and figured I'd say hi. I'm a Liveaboard on the suncoast of FL in a s2 8.0c here to meet other sailors and potential buddy boats for gulf cruising/trip to the keys. Feel free to drop a line, I'm friendly enough. Not sure how much I'm going to check this though so please be patient.
