What used to be a freedom given to boaters seeking safe harbor, has been abused by derelict boaters/boats. US maritime law which was supposed to be the highest court in our country, is now being overtaken by state law? When a boater comes into port from an inlet, he/she has the right to anchor,(outside of navigational channels) along US waterways,(intracoastal waterway, Okeechobee waterway).
Unfortunately, the homeless in our area have found refuge in many of these derelict boats. Does this now cost the taxpayer money house them?
