Re: Florida is at it again

Regardless of any laws, for or against, it's always been problematic to try and live in, or visit, a place where the people in that place, don't want you, or people like you, around.

Examples abound.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Re: Florida is at it again

Latest discussion topics as presented by the FWC at the recent 'meeting' at Vero Beach: http://myfwc.com/media/2847550/ancho...ic-meeting.pdf


Personally, when traveling to the Bahamas and 'south', Im pretty much now committed to leave FL from Ft Pierce .... and simply bypass all of SE Florida and the Keys. Its been too much hassle by 'homeowners', local water cops, the over-aggressive potty-gestapo of Volusia Country, the FWC (especially in Marathon/Boot Key etc.) that I really dont need. I say: to hell with visiting and spending any time (and money) in Florida, ... only 'touching' the state as absolutely as minimally as possible.
Id also include the signing any petition for the FORMAL reduction of any US Govt. funding/spending for any maintenance/dredging of tidal / navigable US waters in Florida. Why should our federal tax money be used to 'improve' the navigable waters for specific local (only) enhancement, and where long distance travelers of such navigable waterways are obviously impeded, restrained and prevented free access/use?

I just wonder when all the rest of the 49 states and their local municipal entities 'reciprocate' and begin to aggressively 'single out', specifically target, and to treat visitors/transients from Florida to their states as 'the extremely unwanted' ... as they seemingly are now to be proposing in Florida?

Re: Florida is at it again

Simply because I really appreciate and thoroughly enjoy the neighborliness/friendliness of the 'low country' & ICW of the Carolinas, Georgia and North Florida ... and the 'Old Time' and Bluegrass parking lot 'music jams' there. When our 'instruments' are out, the only thing in the low country that causes us to move along is cold weather. One misses that 'culture' entirely when offshore and in an infernal hurry. ;-)

To be honest, the only thing I take issue with is the 300ft part of the proposal. Too far. 100ft might be more reasonable.

My neighbours house is 20ft from mine. Does this mean I can have it moved?

It most definitely is not free. It is funded by advertising, which is paid for by all the goods you buy being considerably more expensive than they would be without advertising.

Best answer I have ever heard for using the ICW. Kudos.

If you have enough money to give the appropriate campaign contributions, yes.

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.
