Not that it's relevant to either of the discussions taking place but just to give an example of how the risks are sometimes perceived, Texas has a huge Zebra Mussel issue and with so many trailered boats they are taken from lake to lake so here is the law there.

Possession or transportation of zebra mussels in Texas is a Class C misdemeanor for the first offense, punishable by a fine of up to $500. Repeat offenses can be elevated to a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $2,000, jail time up to 180 days, or both.
I fail to see where a situation regarding trailered, freshwater boats is applicable or even germane to this discussion.

Only to the extent that Florida is now facing a mussels issue and so was germane to the point of how serious these issues can become. I said it wasn't particularly relevant.

As to the OP's situation, none of us still have any idea what exactly was taking place or the marina was basing their statement on.

See I have actually gotten several responses from about 3 persons on this board about various things I did on other threads they told me was a violation of the law. Which I don't take kindly too.
And so I prove them wrong. Let's set the record straight! People have terrible attitudes here. I don't understand it myself.
Ooops...your right...sorry....

I couldn't get the link to work to read it, but the highlights of it mentioned these barnacles have become prevalent in the St Augustine area and they are hazardous.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find out why they are hazardous...maybe someone not on the road can find out some more.
Even if they are a particular nasty type of barnacle, how would scraping them off in the water be preferable to removing them after haul-out so they are rendered DEAD..? Just sayin'

Welcome to American politics. It and the road to hell are paved with excellent intentions.

Barnacles in and of themselves are not hazardous. But when they've been scraped or pressure washed off a boat bottom that is coated with a pesticide (which is how anti fouling paint is classified) and this is done in a boatyard, then they are deemed "hazardous waste" and must be disposed of as such.

And BTW- keep bitching about it. Pretty soon you won't be able to have your boat cleaned in the water either. Then where will you be?

I think it's because you look guilty. And/or you have a guilty conscience. What with all your illegal oyster growing and scraping. And God knows what else you're involved in.

Of course you might just be paranoid.
