Regarding Loon's post, criminal trespassing is different than trespassing. The neighbor did not commit a crime. I am fairly confident that the police would not want to be involved.

Regarding Tilton's post, I think the risk would be very low, and if after speaking to the person and asking/demanding that the boat be removed, absent a physical altercation, what would you suggest? Hiring an attorney, going to court, obtaining a court order, and having that court order ignored or laughed at? I wouldn't have the time or the patience. Maybe a physical altercation is the only alternative, but one that should be avoided. Also, although not stated, in my scenario, the neighbor would be informed that his boat was no longer on the dock so I doubt the family of five would be in any danger. I would hope that the neighbor would care enough to retrieve it.
