Capt Force got it right.

in the keys most blue collar workers can't afford to live there, so many buy a cheap boat and live aboard. some are responsible, but many are not.

Efforts to remove them have not been successful so they are trying something else.

pretty much a few bad apples is spoiling it for everyone else.

I can understand why property owners and cities are upset. abandoned vessels are expensive to remove.

There has also been talks of requiring anchor permits in biscayne park...

-sorry, tourism from boaters is not a big revenue source...
