Conserving money as a higher priority than aesthetics.

May well be living on food stamps.

Been there. . .

Greetings,
Mr. RC. "What is this guy thinking??" Maybe, "I've got leaks I can't afford to fix right now and I want to go boating". I admit it IS somewhat unsightly but he/she/they are on the water living life.

Matthew 7:1 At least in this case...

Liveaboard that will eventually sink with no accountability - that's what that is.

That is the sort of thing that has people in Florida wanting to ban anchoring. Would you want to sit out on your deck with friends and look at that boat day after day?


Really?


Some people just don't care. The owner of this boat is one of those people.

Greetings,
Mr. WK. Hey, lighten up please. How about expanding your circle of boating friends to include those with less than pristine vessels. You might just meet some really nice people. I refer you back to post #6.

Mr. WK. "Some people just don't care. The owner of this boat is one of those people." How can I read anything other than what it states?

OK, what is untrue about that statement? Or the one about anchoring long term in Florida.

Personally, I wouldn't want to have to look at that boat every day. That is my opinion and it is my right to have that opinion. If you don't agree or don't like that I feel that way, that's fine. Oh well.

Quick to throw rocks around here. Maybe they lost their job and have nowhere else to go. It can happen to anyone at anytime.

My take on this. There will be a lot more of this as population grows and disparity of income increases. There are other places in the world where large populations have turned to the water.

Like a few others here. I am fortunate enough to live right on the water. I use the word fortunate very seriously, right along side of the word blessed, and lucky.

As a homeowner it really angers me when my neighbors stick their noses up in the air at folks that have not been so lucky in life, or (and this is often the case) choose not to devote the resources "they" deem appropriate spoiling "their" view.

I have a neighbor who for 15 years putted around our lake in a old, yes kinda beat up pontoon boat. Then two years ago he sold the pontoon boat to his next door neighbor, after having bought a new spiffy pontoon boat.

This spring his wife, went to the neighbor with the older pontoon boat and requested that he remove it from his dock because it was tarnishing her view of the water.

This kind of thing is exactly what some posts in this thread remind me of.
