So you are saying that the OP will be "squatting" on "our" waterways? Other than the fact that he doesn't plan to purchase a fancy, expensive boat what leads you to decide that?

Squat on our waterways? My goodness. What an amazingly elitist attitude. Especially when combined with the apparent belief that anyone and everyone who is on a fixed income must necessarily be a derelict.

They're my waterways, too. I first moved to Florida in 1982. I say, "welcome!" to the OP.

Re: Buying a boat in FL

Well, if you read any article on the removal of derelict boats those "on fixed incomes" are always the ones bemoaning the need for regulation and cleaning up the waterways.

If this guy can afford a decent, seaworthy vessel weather 3k or 300k; he keeps it in seaworthy condition able to navigate under its owns power on short notice. I'm fine with it.

My guess is he's looking for a cheap place to hang out as they charge pretty much everywhere to park an RV. Wonder how much they charged to park and RV in 1974?

I of course mean nice white guys when I say "our" Just like the "take back our country" bumper stickers.
