As to attitude, we're talking a small number of people in a very specific location. There is plenty of anchoring in the area in Miami where the restrictions were put in. Also, there have been the occasional conflicts many places. I've read of boaters being chased away in GA from what was really plenty of distance from the homeowner.

As to MHW and property, all our property is above the MHW. We have a seawall as do most homes in our area plus we only have 2.5' tidal variation.
