We are watching The Money Pit at anchor with the boat slowly changing direction as the wind changes.

Caroline: We have a new neighbor, that boat was not there before.

Me: Welp, I guess I can’t run the genset to top off the batteries.

30 minutes pass…

Caroline: Is that guy moving? Hey, I think he is drifting!

We hailed the boat on the radio with no response so we jumped into the dinghy to give a hand. Banged on the boat and an older gentlemen eventually came out half dressed. “What is goin’ on?”

Sir, you are drifting and are about 20 feet from the rocks. Can you fire up your engine so we can help you back to your mooring ball?

A few minutes later he was tied up.

Little bit of drama in the anchorage.
