No argument from me, Owl. This kind of thing began in Maryland three decades ago, it is significantly worse at this point and all those miniscule fees have escalated at 10 times the rate of inflation. Some states now have undertaken measures to tax live-aboards in the same manner as someone living ashore. Like I said earlier, this will only get worse. Governments have screwed up every enterprise they've become involved in. Recreational boating will soon be something that the average person can no longer afford.
