Wow...is that guy out of touch....a waterway too anchored up for second generation water ski instruction? Like the whole world hasn't changed a bit from when we were kids?

With mentality like that...I see the issue as slanted in top officials eyes already.

Yes, thought it was reasonably well thought out. Hope the process will be objectively done as opposed to already decided and this was just a make you feel like they care.

Eliminate the derilect boats and the need for all of this goes away.
FWIW, in Englewood FL over the summer, most of the derilect and homesteaders went away. Something happened to move them out. See ya!!!

After 23 in the USCG and my last 2 years in Wash, DC.....that guy from F&W didn't give me warm and fuzzies for transient boaters....just a little too pre-mindset based on his examples.

Agree. 3 of the 4 "problems" stated in the intro were con full or part-time cruisers when I bet the source of concern is really derilect or homesteader boats.

Done, I hope it works out OK for us boaters.
I can understand their point of view too, we often read on boating forums how some A'hole at an anchorage anchored too close, blared loud music, took a Pi$$ over the side etc etc. imagine that going on in your back yard, day after day. not to mention derelict and abandoned boats. As usual a few screw up the works for the rest of us.

Yup, really hoping they aren't stroking us before they screw us.

From the video it is readily apparent where this will end up. Very little about anchoring rights, but much about negatives. I do not like participating in activities with predetermined outcomes. The only way to stop this crap is law suits. That is expensive, and the FWC knows it.This appears to be a charade.

I did the survey. I think the definition of derelict boats was well defined, but as FF says not defined as to who would remove the boat or how it would be funded. Though those issues wouldn't be part of a survey.

In my opinion the state should approve and regulate proposal 1-4 as defined in the survey. No local government should be able to impose or even be able to ask the FWC for further anchoring restrictions. The 60 day anchoring limitation and derelict boat restrictions if enforced will protect waterfront homeowners especially in light of the fact that most underwater land belongs to the public.

Don, I agree with you, the video was not pro boaters. However I thought the survey was fair as proposed and didn't reflect the tone of the video.

Anyone know BoatUS's stance on the Florida anchoring debate?

I have seen articles where they are passing info, but haven't seen anything where they are lobbying one way or the other.

Florida has been trying for several years to accommodate the wishes of both boaters and homeowners as it concerns anchoring. Local governments have bent to the wishes of some influential waterfront home owners and unilaterally imposed locally created anchoring regulations. Those restrictions were challenged in court and initially found unlawful.

However there has been much pressure from some waterfront landowners and their local governments to put some form of regulations on the books.

I spent 2 months anchoring at 19 different spots on the east and west coast of FL this summer. Spots included open areas where many boats were anchored and small areas around upscale homes where we were the only boat anchored. I was never challenged by anyone at any of these spots.

If anyone has been challenged about their anchoring spot in FL, please post your experience.
