MOORING OFF ICW
Sounds like you''re between the rock and the other place with this mooring. A conversation with your municipal representative sounds like it would be in order, so he or she will push for more marina slips. (Then, when you get one, you have to pay for it, of course...) Your lawyer (you?) can research the jurisdiction question further. It would make sense to look up other cases in Florida where this has been an issue. In the meantime, to be in compliance with the law, you may have to pull your mooring every ten days and move it twenty feet. Boat US might be worth contacting for their take on this as well, since they do focus on regulatory issues. Not fun- and with running a business you can''t just go off cruising - which would solve the problem. Sorry can''t be more helpful.
