The entire thing wreaks of some sort of entitlement. The story doesn't even sound logical.

1) He bought a boat, which appeared to be tied to a private dock is a canal community. He took possession 'and was asked to leave'. Who would assume that you would remain on the dock with the boat??

2) He became grounded and was towed over to a neighbors dock. (That is kind of the stranger who appears to have nothing to do with this). He is eventually asked to leave that dock because it has been leased and the leasee wants to occupy the dock.

3) He is moved across the canal to another neighbor. This neighbor sees the tarps, the state of the boat and asks him to leave as well.

It's here that he starts to talk about the lack of compassion and lack of religious morals for turning out a man in need.

4) Another neighbor tows him (gladly, I'm sure) out of the neighborhood. He is placed with what appear to be other full time residents at the mouth of the canal community.

5) He then comments that the boat owners in the canal community rip in and out on plane waking the liveaboard anchorage. (This is, unfortunately all too common. We get that a lot anywhere we anchor (and we're short time transients who don't look like a derelict boat).
