Allow me to explain-I've never understood the point of living aboard a boat, if it's never leaving the slip.
There are a lot of people trying to play "beat the rent" by living on derelict boats in marinas, on mooring balls and at anchor.
These people are not interested in sailing or boating. They are in search of cheap rent (or free) and not paying property taxes. These people are the reason for the ever-restrictive anchoring laws in Florida and elsewhere.
