If these unlawful attempts are not challenged in some fashion we will all, in our lifetimes, witness the total control of all boating
activities by those who do unite against us in mass. We can look forward to no anchoring
anywhere on any coast without paying through the nose and being forced into marinas
fields for $150.00 per night or so. Next they will continue to attempt to prohibit any live aboard any where. They will not stop until stopped!
We need to speak out in mass through cruising publications, boat US and forums
such as this one. The opposition follows forum post through spies. We need to force a court test in the Federal System for harassment by state and local authorities. I feel certain that is coming in the near future, and that the free law of the sea will prevail.
Sorry for the soap box, freedom is a passionate issue for me.
