I think that is a good survey and hopefully things can be resolved. I think a 150 ft setback is reasonable. I anchor 300+days per year and when on land live in Florida on the water. In the last 2,000 days of anchoring I have never anchored within 150 ft of anything that might damage my boat except for another boat.

However, even when I had a 30 ft boat I never used the ICW...I get nervous near all those boats and people!

Is it as Captmeme writes an ICW problem?

Are there too many boats chasing too few anchoring spots?

I have sailed many times between Fenandino Beach, Key West and many points in between but except for Biscayne Bay I have never traveled longitudinally on the ICW in Florida even when I was on a ICW friendly boat.

How big is the problem? Are there hundreds or thousands of boat anchoring each night within a boat's length of private docks in Florida?

Will a 150 ft setback force these boats to use marinas or sail at night on the outside?
