Boat anchored to a mooring buoy

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:

  • Operate any vessel in such a way that it will interfere unnecessarily with the safe navigation of other vessels on the waterway.
  • Anchor a vessel in the traveled portion of a river or channel in a way that will prevent or interfere with any other vessel passing through the same area.
  • Moor or attach a vessel to a buoy (other than a mooring 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.
  • Obstruct a pier, wharf, boat ramp, or access to any facility.
