Freighter lights in anchorage’s

For almost a year now we have been trying to cooperate with this interim protocol. The only reason I was the least bit hopeful that there were good intentions on your side of this argument was that when I emailed a complaint regarding noise or lights the Harbour Master acted quickly to remedy the situation.

Now there is a new system in place with an online form that after three submissions has borne no results.

Is it coincidence that the first freighter arriving after this new system took place has left all of its bright lights on all night? I doubt it.

Please put a more responsive system back in place.

Also it has been reported by concerned citizens that last week sailors were observed coming ashore from the Desert Oasis with backpacks. This particular ship has received numerous complaints while anchoring here. Although not documented it does raise some serious concerns if people are entering our country illegally. What procedures are in place to ensure people are staying onboard while here.
