Another reason for anchoring in a cove.

Crab Island in Destin Florida is a great place to spend the night on a boat. Idle zone an to shallow for boat traffic.

When we stay overnight we stay in area with no traffic, so that helps. We also have solar powered yard lights on top of the house boat so that provides the required lighting without using any of your battery power. You can get them cheap and Lowes and they last all night and are pretty bright.
