Re: Houseboat sinks at anchor Daytona
yea,the Meth head was anchored on the south side of seabreeze bridge.
hate to say it,but it's getting ugly down there. there's a couple dismasted boats and a pontoon boat there tied to the public dock.
There are 5 sailboats and 2 power that haven't moved under there own power in almost a year!
I've been watching that anchorage an the "boaters " that are aboard those vessels.
it's a perfect example of the FWC,coast guard, and local water cops not enforcing the laws that would prevent the situation that is worsening to the point that even I would hesitate to anchor in that area due to the characters aboard those vessels.
I can say this because I've gone out of my way to observe the situation and talk to the offenders.
I'm convinced the situation could be alleviated by enforcement of current laws.
Legal anchor lights, not yard lights.
the law pertaining to being able to make way,several of the boats anchored were towed there.
haven't checked the registration stickers but I will in the next couple days.
why aren't law enforcement doing what they are paid to do?
who should I be asking or pointing this out to?
my concern is if the law enforcement is allowed to let this situation continue it will be used to restrict mariners like myself, who choose to anchor legally and responsibly,from anchoring there.
I can only presume the MSD situation is not being dealt with legally as the boats are never sailed, motored,or moved.
and now the newest arrival sinks the first day it arrived,and the owners attempt at recovery apparently isn't going so good.
