Roger Long, that's a pretty boat you have! Our first trawler was a 1974 Gulfstar 43, and we loved it! Took it to the Bahamas three times, and the current owners (friends of ours) have taken it once as well. Recently, they relocated it from Melbourne, FL to Pascagoula, MS over about two weeks. When anyone is asking for advice on what trawlers to look at, I always suggest the early Gulfstars!

if rules are good...then of course boats towed in and still cant move after months must be under some rule to get removed... easy peezy.

How such a simple subject can get so complicated on TF?

or is the subject still simple and the posters are this complicated?....

TFers have differing opinions and experience and we're not all the same. No one has the monopoly on 'right'. I, for one, appreciate considering the differing views and experiences.

The answer is simple - Each marina gets to set its own rules and its own level of enforcement. That means thousands of different sets of rules. Most of us have only encountered dozens at best.

Also, in both cases cited, we were not there so we don't know exactly what happened and what was said.

This is one of those threads where there's no single conclusion.

Sure if you guess based on limited experience.. I have been to hundreds of marinas through the years between Mobile., Al and Boston, Ma.

I also work in the assistance tow business.

I also am friends with more than a few marina managers uo and down the coast.

No, the situation described was an anomoly in my experience.

Those that want to "guess" what policies are....great. Which is fine, but as some stated, it seems different than the norm.

Plus I have already commented on the non event of towing in a broken boat. If the marina has a service department...wow are tbey happy.
