'just one positive note. We are currently cruising north on the central east Florida coast. We have been cruising Florida waters since 1972 and frequently anchoring. At this time we have still never been approached or questioned by any authority about our anchoring practices. We will be anchoring in the Melbourne area tomorrow and at Titusville the following day, then on to New Smyrna, Daytona and Saint Augustine. We do often take a marina day in New Smyrna and the mooring field in St. Augustine. We will also anchor out at Pine Island and Blount Island before taking a couple days at the free dock at the Jacksonville Landing. We Cruise! We have not spent more than three months at any one anchorage in Florida. Are we lucky? Is the enforcement selective? I don't know, but the fact is we have NEVER been approached or questioned about our anchoring practices in Florida. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
