I am new to bigger power boats, and am setting up my new boat (30'). I haven't heard much said, or haven't seen many boats with the black anchor ball required to be displayed while day anchoring. Where do you mount this ball? Do you have to hoist it? Where? How? I've seen the collapsable one from West Marine, but don't know where to put it.
I understand there is a difference between busy places such as the two coasts, but in a remote anchorage in, say, PWS, are people using them? If the regs say you are supposed to, how is the CG, or State, handling that, if you don't have one? Thanks.
