I'm still wondering, how far distant will you be required to move?
Have you been required to have a permit from the city for your mooring?[/QUOTE]

Well maybe you misunderstand my argument. I have keep my yacht at a local Marina for a few years now. I don't mind the cost associated with keeping it there. I know boat owners in the mooring that have a struggle trying to keep up with the escalating cost of boat ownership. I want to be able to drop my hook in any U.S navigable waterway without some money grubbing local city gov, standing there with their hand out looking for a revenue stream.
If you can't wrap your head around my problem with that. Well maybe you have friends on the city council. what ever I'm done with this topic.,
enjoy your weekend.
