I agree the North East is very boater friendly, that's why I'm moving to the east coast. But if that same house and island were in Ft. La Ta Da there would be 200 boats trying to tie up to those mooring balls, without permission. That is the difference.

Some of the anchorages in Fl are used mainly by folks traveling up the ICW. The towns along the water way may have been doing us what they thought was a good turn by limiting the stay. How would you feel if your favorite hidey hole that was always so peacefull but you could only stay 24hs, was suddenly full of boats that stay there all winter? This is just another view point. I do agree that the 24 hr law was illegal, but it may have been to our advantage.
