Really bad advice... If you are in a state for a long enough period of time, they come after you for taxes... many states don't care if you paid sales taxes on the boat elsewhere, and will still come after you for use and/or excise taxes.

As for anchoring there are a few communities causing issues but they are not enforcable because florida state law has been ruled on by the State Supreme Court and the State rewote the applicable laws to comply.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
