In florida you can contact fish and wildlife for violations, breaking laws, abandoned boats that are a hazard or even the speeders in manatee areas. I had forgotten about that. Shows how often I call them. Never

Help me out here. Where would you dispose of your boat? Seems one would need to find a place to get rid of them, like car junkyards.
A great opportunity for each coastal state to designate an artificial reef area where derelict boats can be sunk in 100 feet of water. Future scuba and fishing paradise.

Re: Anchoring and Cruisers' Responsibilities

what the snotties in coronado cays used to do when anchorage 8, the free anchorage , was open, was to tow their 20-25 ft boats into the anchorage and let them go without anchoring them then call police that a boat was adrift in the anchorage----was interesting to watch. the police would tow them into impound, and after the month of wait time, crush em.
after a awhile, the city of sd figgered this out and started to charge folks for crushing the took them a long time to figure it out, tho....
