Re: Liveaboard in Key West?

Gary - thats exactly my concern with these "well run" city mooring fields. Cities, counties, and other municipalities should *NOT* be using their natural resources as profit centers to cover for profligate spending in other areas, or subsidizing their citizens in other ways. Its not the city of Marathon citizens that own the waterways...its the STATE OF FLORIDA.

This is bordering on a political thread now...but I've always wondered why people get so wound up about gov't waste at a national level. The worst offenders and the most corruption is local. The worst is "legal" corruption like some of these cities can get away with. 24 hour obscene parking charges on public beaches or areas of attraction...mooring fields where you used to be able to anchor, ridiculous fees to enter county or city parks...lexus lanes on public interstate systems! Sheesh...you gotta be rich to leave your hovel nowadays.
