I think he lost interest in this and other forums he has posted in when the GoFundMe link won't work.

If he would just post one more time to answer all of our questions I would consider donating to his fund.

Have to be Houdini to hide a sunken boat in water this shallow. If they sunk in the channel no one could get out of this harbour. The two markers you seem to imply may be sinkers are clearly marked on the chart.

PS. Our keel is often buried in mud in the area immediately west of the park where the chart shows 3'.

Here is where my boat is moored. Each boat has multiple images as it swings around the ball:

I found this post to be very interesting.
I sure am glad there are some people on here that have enough actual knowledge of what gets posted that the misinformation gets quashed pretty quickly. Thank you.

Re: Unlawful boating tickets, government extortion!!!

I kept my old boat on the Delaware River, literally 1/2 mile from the end of runway 9R/27L at PHL. Google satellite photos would frequently show airplane shadows on the river surface, as well as the jets flying overhead. They would come and go as Google posted updated imagery.

While I disagree with the nasty NY/NJ millionaires with their "get out of my view" attitude toward innocent cruisers, I'm also sympathetic toward legitimate concerns that people have over derelict boats....blah..blahbety blah..
Is this the standard putdown around PA? Why are you dragging NY into this? Jealous that PA has no oceanfront?

They can come from anywhere, but the comments I hear from those who live down there is that people bring the fast-paced northeast city attitudes with them, especially the multi-millionaires with the walls and moats around their houses. Having lived there, I know what they mean. You can insert any city/state you want. No stereotype is universal or perfect. I should have omitted the reference.

Re: Unlawful boating tickets, government extortion!!!

I just saw the OP's gofundme page. $10 raised toward a $3500 goal. Seems most think this is BS. I found the page, via another forum, where the entire OP is cut and paste. Even the GFM page is the same cut and paste.

Why in the world would everyone else pay for what the OP thinks are illegitimate fines? If they're legitimate, all the more silly.

I'm guessing we'll never see the OP again.

Ironic that a money grab was attempted to address an accused money grab.

Re: Unlawful boating tickets, government extortion!!!

I'll all for the police giving out tickets to the run down derelict eyesore boats. It pisses me off as a cruiser that I can't find a good place to anchor a lot of times because people have basically abandoned their boat in the only place available. The number of places along the water I haven't been able to stop at and see from this is huge. Yet most threads about the issue, like the OP in this one, try to make it seen it's the rich landowners and the State just being a-holes.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
