Responsible boaters are not going to be the ones that have derelict boats anchored out. Yet, they are the ones who are really affected by such "cannon" tactics. The derelicts will find another place, until that one is put off limits, and then move again. Meanwhile, more and more areas are put off limits for the responsible boaters.

Life may not be fair, but every erosion of personal freedom that is lost, will never be regained.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
