Re: Opposition to liveaboards

I have a couple of moorings around the Key's. Sometimes I find a boat on one and I ask them how long they are staying, "why" they ask and I tell them that the ground tackle is mine, I understand I have no right to ask them to leave and I tell them what it is so they know what they are on and usually they say they are only spending the night or a day or two and I say "cool.". and in a day or two they are usually gone. If they look like they are fixing to home stead, I tell them I am retreaving my gear so they may want to drop an anchor. They usually leave soon after that. As for growth, My boat is on a home made mooring and once a month I clean the line. it's amazing the beard it grows, but it's never effected the holding strength.
