Basically this guy has moved out of the anchorage restriction area far from the mooring field or his "boat" would have been tagged and removed. Like I said the anchoring issue in Florida is a non starter
RE: Bold....
I just helped a friend raise a sunk boat, and haul it to the dump..... that he sold ten years ago! The guy he sold it to never transferred title, moved aboard and lived on it for a decade. It sunk, he disappeared, and my friend was on the hook for a $250/day fine as the last REGISTERED owner!

Moral of the story: go to the tag office and make sure the title is transferred!

Any fool with a big enough checkbook can BUY a boat; it takes a SPECIAL type of fool to build his own! -Capngeo
