Re: Here is one reason for anchoring problems in Florida

Here in Washington state they have a 30 day anchoring law no more than 30 days at a time then have to move min of 5 miles but if they see you in town spending bucks locally they tend to overlook the 30 day laws.
( money talks)

Re: Here is one reason for anchoring problems in Florida

This is a tragic story that should teach us all lessons. Little ones should always wear a life jacket when on the boat and netting around the lifelines is clearly a necessity with little ones on board. I know that we've (my wife and I) have been tempted to say, "it's ok, she doesn't need her life jacket right now" but this is a powerful reminder and I'm glad we've been pretty diligent about keeping three year old in her jacket and tethered. I feel for their loss.

Re: Here is one reason for anchoring problems in Florida

Guys this child's unfortunate death has nothing to do with live aboards. For all we know this could have been a family on a week long trip.

We all feel for the family. It is a tragic event.

My post had nothing to do with greed. Those who know me, know better.

For those who wish to judge me without personally knowing me, I will defer to The Almighty , "let he who be without sin cast the first stone."

Re: Here is one reason for anchoring problems in Florida

Sounds like the gun debate to me. Crackhead shoots somebody or somebody's child they blame it on the gun.

Has nothing what-so-ever to do with anchoring and everything to do with politics.

I wouldn't recognize a pic of my little bro, as a child without one. I got rid of mine after Pop had thrown me over enough times, Somehow he was always in the water before me.

It is tragic!
