The Pilot Program is under review in some places and it is wise to check online for the latest updates.
I am not trying to defend this program but Florida, and other places as well, have a real problem with what by almost any definition are junk boats that are a real danger to navigation. There is also a problem with some folks who live on boats and abuse shore facilities.
