Spare me the insults, pal.

It's obvious from my post that I was referring to UNREGULATED mooring balls not having the right to claim the water (or the land under it). My reference to the LP tanks and Chlorox bottles, which you conveniently edited out of your quote, should have given that away.

Then I went on to say, "Of course, if the owner is licensing his rights to the water from a regulating authority with a licensed mooring ball, then that's a different story." This makes it clear that I respect the rights of people who are actually renting licensed balls.

I was just asking a question from my admitted lack of experience. The snarkiness or your response detracts from its usefulness.
