Immediately the discussion goes to “MY rights” and then to most every suggestion short of blowing the boat out of the water. My guess is that could be coming soon. Sounds like a great neighborhood!

There appears to be some sort of history with a prior owner/generation, but I suspect whoever left the boat at the dock was simply, at best, moving slow or just on a different schedule than others.

Maybe, just work it out without the dramatics!
I think the history defines the recourse. If you're so chill give me the keys to your car and I'll give it back when I feel like. My timing may no suit your timing. I may be slow or lazy. After all, your so-called "rights" in your car can't be any more or less than the so-called "rights" of the dock owner.
