    The boats look anchored to me (see pointless masthead lights at the same level as the harbour lights.)

    When weve been there we see one or two boats anchored on the wrong side of the line of bouys that mark the commercial harbour limits (with a huge sign on the wall ) so the ferries swing in close and sound horns to wake them up.

    But they obviously can never wake up and move in time but get a fright and a bit of a lesson.

    This ferry looks like its upped the ante.

    Its a rolly but really useful anchorage but this brace of fools may be the final excuse to ban it.
