Re: Finding free anchorages on East Coast?

We are losing our freedom here bit by bit. Some places will not allow your to anchor, or you will need a lawyer to represent you if you want to fight it. Harbor cops are mostly fools with no boating experience. It is not uncommon to be hassled. Stopping for fuel some places want a landing fee. While is true they cannot make you pay, that is the next step. There is one fee or bill after another. You can avoid this by moving on, but it still happens. Bit by bit we lose our freedoms and only by fighting back can be stop it. It is the nature of bureaucracy, and now that times are tougher, cities, states, and the federal level each seeks to find new ways to charge people for what was once free.
