Re: Opposition to liveaboards
Brett, you are dissembling rather than replying on point.
What the seabed may or may not be, has no bearing on the mooring you have picked up. The mooring is chattel goods and private property. It is not real estate nor is it public property, any more than your boat is public property because your boat is located on the public waters.
If the mooring was placed illegally, then of course you are equally in violation of the laws for using it, since you claim any use of the mooring is illegal.
"A cruising lawyer has told me they have no legal right to exclude anyone from a mooring ." That's wondefully vague. Who they? They who? No one has a legal right to exclude you from using an illegal mooring? Including the folks who say that by law a mooring can't be placed where you're using it?
