Just goes to show you, you can't believe everything you read on the Internet
The fact is that FL is pro-boat, heck the boat per household numbers are some of the highest in the country.
Some folks love to highlight the problems, usually caused by homeowners who have move here from somewhere else.... And some municipalities who get pressure from those same folks.
There are A LOT of boats here, and a LOT of visiting cruisers. Next time some one is whining about FL, remember 72% of FL voted to pay higher property taxes
to protect our waterfront access and businesses.
