It's not even Yankees in general. It's people from New York and New Jersey from what I saw when living there. I would not be surprised to find out there are more people from New Jersey living in Florida than in New Jersey.

For some reason, they don't know how to compromise, and they will never stop arguing until they get their way.

Agreed....I was being a smartass.

The real problem, in my opinion, is two-fold: some people tend to be control freaks and need to regulate things to the extreme , and some people tend to be nasty, lazy, foul, and disgusting and ruin things for everyone else.

I also believe these two groups represent a relatively small minority of the overall population, but because they are at the extremes they tend to be the ones that get all of the attention.......while the rest of us just try to get along with each other.

Re: Florida is at it again

At 4pm the proposed amendment by FL state senator Smith was defeated.

There are very active and well-financed elements in Florida that simply don't want to see boats anchored in their "paid for" view.

As a representative of SSCA I will continue to work to bring forces to bear against those elements.

As an individual I avoid Florida as much as I can. As a small businessman I am happy to support owner-aboard/training deliveries from Norfolk or Beaufort NC to the Bahamas, avoiding the ICW and especially Florida.

Actually, I don't think he is. I think he moved to Florida in 1969 at the age of seven or so with his father John S. Karlton, from ......... wait for it.......

New York.

LOL! Well, they teach them young in NY, I suppose... :-)

Should have figured that would be the case, with only 1 in 3 Floridians today having been born in the state...

My wife who is a Near Native ( she' was actually born in North Carolina but grew up here) graduated from UF and most of her classmates were from....
wait for it.......... New Yuk. The fact that this guy who might be called a near native just proves that even the University of Florida ( go gators ) can produce a real dipstick... his diploma should be revoked and he should be anathema for any self respecting gator. Unfortunantly the the fact of the matter is that once you go south of Gainsville you actually start going north again. It has always been that way, Flagler didn't start development for the poor southerners or Florida Crackers, no it was for the wealthy northerners.
By the way, if you are a northerner and not a *****, love boats and the water then you get a pass on bein Yankee. The real problem as always is the bought out Viper politicians that are so pervasive in this country.
This is a great thread.... thanks for starting it and hopefully continuing it along with the fight.

Re: Florida is at it again

The northeast is full of great coastal/boating towns. Are there many problems with laws being passed in those towns to keep boats from anchoring? If the people leading this charge for a horrible law were from Kentucky or Colorado for that matter you would be bashing them instead. It is more than obvious that Florida has become a haven for NYers, Jersey folk and also full of people from Illinois, Canada, Michigan etc. Maybe the Floridians got too greedy way back when by begging for tourist dollars and selling all their land to the first bidder that came along. Nobody wants to see giant condos going up all over the beaches and waterways either. I know I would rather have a view of palm trees when i'm out on my boat however the Floridians that care so much for the views are too busy selling all the land for condos and strip malls. It's just part of life. I don't think it's fair to blame an entire region for the actions of few. Maybe someone should hire some guys from NY or NJ to help these people who are trying to pass this law change their mind

Re: Florida is at it again

You NY bashers, in case you were not aware, NY consists of the more generally obnoxious NYC/LI area and the 95% of NY that is much more like VT, NH, ME and Canada. Please don't ever confuse the two, we who live upstate don't!
