Re: Florida is at it again
I don't boat in FL and it certainly sounds tough down there. I'm guessing, due to the year round climate, that permanent crappy stuff is more common than up here. However, landlubbers can be territorial and far outnumber boaters in our democratic system. Feels like a huge uphill battle.
That said, I find we have to be reasonable to co-exist. Personally, I would be very uncomfortable being less than 300 ft off a waterfront homes lawn, just for running aground, if not privacy. As we all know, that feels much much closer than that. 150 ft off a mooring field doesn't sound too tough to me, but I'm sure I've been closer in a pinch.
Of course, I do not have a personal appreciation of what is left to anchor in, after restrictions like these. Hope it all settles down.
