Without diving into the site too much, this looks like a good resource to understand the facts vs. a thousand opinions. [note the providing source as Center for Governmental Responsibility at the Univ. of Fla. Levin College of Law.

Re: Looking for Florida Mooring Fields

DO NOT bother with Dinner Key Marina or Biscayne Bay area for that matter!

Salvagers who anchor/live downwind of the fields are known to cut mooring lines in the middle of the night then "salvage" your boat!

Now that's an interesting comment.
Do you have any documentation of that activity?

Re: Looking for Florida Mooring Fields

Actually I was more interested in why you suspect "salvagers" downwind of the vessels cut loose.
Lines can be cut for a multitude of reasons, even accidentally.
