Yeah, I don't understand why so many people have these stories of sufferring from gestapo tactics. They may be true, but what are they doing to attract this attention? I've been anchoring in Florida and Georgia waters since 1972 and I've never, not at any time, been approached or questioned by any authority while at anchor. I was once boarded by the DNR in Georgia waters while underway an politely questioned about my cruising path and desination. Once, I was given a citation in Volusia county for an expired registration sticker, but that was with just cause. I've never had any unreasonable encounter with authorities in Florida, Georgia or any US East Coast State. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
