You don't have a better argument than to whine that people are enjoying their rights to anchor contrary to your needs for backyard gazing pleasure. Point made. They're being inconsiderate by not boating as decorously as you do. I'm sure none of your neighbors have ever smelled your cooking or heard you squabble with your partner.
You bought--or otherwise acquired--something that most people with or without boats will never be able to own. The view is yours. The things you view aren't. You chose to live adjacent to a public anchorage. Grow up and stop your entitled whining, or sell and move.

Anchoring, while cruising, is not for my leisure and recreation. Rather it is for my safety and security. I use my boat to travel from place to place, as you might in your car. Would you stop your vehicle in a dangerous place because you were told you couldn't stop in a safe place. I think not.............

I don't think either one of those posters are trolling, even though I disagree with their opinions (and personal insults), I believe they are sincere.

Re: Florida is at it again

The 2016 session of the Florida legislature starts in a few weeks. There is already a bill in work behind the scenes to limit anchoring. *sigh* SSCA Concerned Cruisers Committee is collecting information and I will report here as more is known.

Checked out the areas affected and have to wonder why the "BS" reference.

With the exception of East Pass/Crab Island, these are TINY areas in close proximity to residences, where an anchored boat (allowing for swinging room) either could not or would be hard pressed to stay more than 200' from a residential shore. Changing the buffer to 150', say, would not significantly open these areas.

East Pass would be a different situation where safe navigability of the pass may be impacted. Not familiar enough with that area to have an opinion, though.

I'm all for minimal restrictions on anchoring, but the proposed House Bill does not seem an unreasonable compromise for the East coast areas affected.

If this is the way you poke your most sympathetic audience in the eye, at the slightest disagreement, you must be the cause's biggest nightmare. Bad attitudes never get anything constructive done. They fight to the death, until they die. The government system can't be killed.

They've come up with an interesting new approach. Not a set back, just an overnight prohibition, as opposed to a total prohibition, in defined waters. I'm curious how they'll argue the merits of it. I don't need to be lectured on what's really going on, this battle is about how the system works.

Boaters need to be more clever than the opposition and I'm not seeing it.
