Yours is a fine looking boat, so I would imagine the folks at Fisher Island would 'tolerate' your presence there for at least a while... that guy whose boat burned up the other day however, with dogs that were barking incessantly, well... I would imagine the powers that be at Fisher Island would soon find a way to 'encourage' him to move on... :-)

Knowing first hand, how protective Fisher Island is of it's residents, even from law enforcement (it was difficult, to say the very least, to try and investigate anyone living there), and knowing who some of the people who live there are, I would not expect them to let any boat linger long without someone approaching them to find out who they were.

One of the weird things about south Florida (and there are many weird things about south Florida ), are the quasi-police forces a lot of the smaller, super wealthy, towns, and even private subdivisions got away with running down there. Most would actively work against us and are not really police the way we traditionally think of them.
