While I agree with the tone of being courteous, what is the public doing to heavily subsidize the private moorings? I hope you're not suggesting some great favor by not exercising their sovereign ability to tax whatever they like?

In abstract, who says anyone owns or controls a single drop of water from the shoreline. I'm not really arguing that society should have no say in the matter, but its important to be grounded in what we all feel entitled to. If I want to fund a cabin on the moon, who do I have to get permission from? How about the Arctic? Just trying to make a point.
