The WLA had success in fighting back against the ruling but the end result was the Sate putting in liveaboard Caps in the aquatic leases to the marinaís. While at the time it had little affect as there were many fewer liveaboards. Over time the demand to liveaboard has increased but like all housing supply has not kept up or in our case, supply is frozen.

I didn't realize that. My condo marina is partly on DNR owned land. We just renewed the lease a couple years ago.
