3) No one should have the right to take the ICW waterway and claim rights to make money with is.

Just show me one example of maintenance expenses that is covered by the fees charged in any east coast mooring field.

Tell that to the home owners in New London, CT. That went all the way to the supreme court.

The reality is the waterways are federally regulated and the fed issued a permit.

As far as mooring fields, I don't have access to their books but if they were a looser I doubt Block Island, Newport, Cuttyhunk, The Vinvard, Nantucket and every other harbor up the coast to Maine would continue to do it.
