That's right. I am a resident of South Florida. And I do not want to see any of your junky boats anchored off my view... unless it is over 2 million dollars. Come on? Someone mentioned a million dollars? Please!! That's nothing but a fancy Sea Ray!!
In all reality, it really is a crock. Although, I will say that in some areas, the land under the water is actually owned. I CAN see how they could run you off of private property. You have to wonder how long, with 300 million people now, until anchoring is a thing of the past... versus paying for a morring ball or in a marina. Hopefully not in my lifetime.
Still, I have not had a real problem with that. But my Catalina 400 costs over 2 million dollars... if anyone asks.
