And Florida is one of the States with strong Good Samaritan laws. Mainly brought about because of the trial lawyers who went after people who tried to offer assistance. It's a shame that we had to have laws passed to protect people who are doing acts of goodness and kindness.

What has happened to the idea of us being our brothers keeper? I'm glad to see that by far people are and it's only a few that aren't.

Sailorboy I wasn't thinking of you. In fact the vast, and I mean vast majority from what I've seen so far are great people. Even the ones that have different opinions are for the most smart and people I would have no issue having a drink with. But the one or two who I will not name are scary.

Sociopaths are not all that uncommon. But like most groups we have our bad apples that give us a bad name.

Like crazy people who are paranoid that people are going to step on their boat. (back to topic)

Your welcome to step on my boat anytime to say high or fix a rope. That goes for all boaters out there. Even the drunk sailor who stumbles onto the wrong boat at 2 am.

But be warned. I'm highly skilled at processing visual information within split seconds and if you are carrying an M16 your going down before you can blink.

Oh, and if your coming late at night uninvited you will be greeted with spot lights and a siren along with a recorded dog barking alarm and if I'm in an especially suspect area you will get a high non lethal electric shock as you climb aboard. But don't worry if your just drunk and lost your way you will be scared sh......... and I am sure you will sober up quickly. ��

Re: Boarding someone elses boat

A boat in distress from fire or smashing up against rock, docks or other boats has left the realm of their personal property rights and headed to others personal property rights. There is also the need to prevent their fire or fuel spillage from extending to things and places where they are NOT the owner. e.g. your right to privacy and personal property stops when it interferes with my property rights and the environment.

So your boat gets boarded if there is a fire, if it's sinking or if it's dragging into others boats or the rocks. Why because I have absolutely NO idea if you have sufficient insurance to pay for YOUR neglect. So I'll stay off but please post the phone number to your insurance agent so I can be certain they are willing to pay for your choices.

I spent 25 years breaking into fancy homes of rich folks... as a firefighter!

When things go wrong, someone has to pick up the axe!
