Re: 52' houseboat aground holly hill,FL.

I wonder if an environmental permit was in place for the outfit the city hired to remove the boat as they blasted water jets under the hull in an attempt to refloat it?

See picture and caption in the article below.

I'm all for the environment and conservation, particularly as it relates to water and associated resources. However, public entities seem to do whatever they like to our wetlands, shorelines, etc. if it suits them while raking private citizens over the coals for the same (although usually on a much smaller scale) activities/actions.

Me too...even though I'm ripping on ya, I do hope you get your boat back and it all gets worked out. I'd hate to see someone lose their boat, whatever the circumstance.

Good one on the homestead blocking the seizure auction....I bet that was like kicking the fire ant mound.

Re: 52' houseboat aground holly hill,FL.

Interesting idea of using a homestead exemption to protect the value. I have never seen it used this way, but it defiantly could work.

I am not a Florida attorney, and it looks like an issue of first appearance, but I would be cautious about one of the exceptions to the exemption is workers or mechanics leins might be able to breach the exemption. I don't know how the courts would apply a salvage lein in this case, but it certainly is interesting.

Re: 52' houseboat aground holly hill,FL.

thanks to all who have replied. I just won a court battle against the city regarding my homestead of my boat. I did win, the judge awarded my boat to me saying that the city nor the marina it was at had no claim of lein against my property. That was thursday, the city could'nt wait to move my boat from the marina without my or the courts knowledge or consent. They moved it friday evening to their public works lay down yard. The city is not insured or qualified to move such a vessel without knowledgable help. Now i was told by a city employee who helped in moving my boat that the city is currently debating how to compensate me for all of the injustice and suffering they have caused me.

Re: 52' houseboat aground holly hill,FL.

well,I just got off the phone with the U.S.Attorney's office. I'm now ready to file piracy charges on the city of holly hill and all parties who helped in the theft of my boat. City is still trying to fight my homestead of my boat but I'm confident I will be victorious in court. Stay tuned same batty time,same batty channel.LOL

Re: 52' houseboat aground holly hill,FL.

Nice to know that you spoke to the AG's office.

Nice to know you're ready to continue on.

Nicer still to know what the AG's take on this was, since it appears clear that piracy is defined as an act taking place in international waters, so by definition, whatever happened to you wasn't piracy and can't be prosecuted as such.

Of course, you won't tell us what section of the USC or other governing law you think applies to the "piracy" here, because apparently there is none.

Good luck with that. You'd have a far more convincing case if you were able to provide straight answers to straight questions. But this way? In Florida, they'll Baker Act you.

Re: 52' houseboat aground holly hill,FL.

yes, piracy can be committed in the navigable waters in the U.S. The AG will inform me later today if an investigation is needed. Either way I'm still going to file charges of piracy. As far as your immature remark as to the Baker Act, grow up and be more responsible when replying to comments made on this site
