Re: Mooring bouys

Right. I think the better analogy is not society's ability to tax. A mooring permit is different as it is a license or permit to use public property that has value. Probably a bad example, but if the state government owns an unused building and leases it for 100 dollars a month in a market where comparable property is leasing at 10,000, the lessee is getting a deal and the loss in rent is absorbed by us, the public, who own the building. Maybe there is a good reason for the lower rent, but not charging the fair market rent is a type of subsidy. That's all I mean.

Re: Mooring bouys

For the records, I would never use any privately owned mooring buoy unless in an emergency that will create a greater danger to others if I don't pick the ball.

OTOH, if I own a mooring ball or a slip, I don't mind other using it if I am not around. I may put a contact number on a small tag attached to the ball and advise the transient captain to call me before using it for the nite.

I don't mind to share
