Nor did the guy who was busted in Daytona a few weeks back for using his anchored sailboat as a meth lab...now,I'm an ardent anchoring advocate.
But,this kind of stuff doesn't help bolster public opinion in favor of long term anchoring.
Why not write it? I'd read it. I'm sure you must have some eye opening or entertaining stories.I was routinely frustrated with derelict vessels. They make all legitimate cruisers look bad and suffer from oppressive laws. I could write a book about the issues with the boating public and impossible to enforce laws. Best of luck.
Joe is right, Daytona actually does have quite a bit to recommend it, and can be a very pleasant stop if you have to run that stretch inside...Oh,please don't avoid Daytona. there are plenty of places to safely anchor and go ashore. easy public transport to provisions. as well as dining and nightlife on the waterfront on beach street.
just a couple hobos.
