    Government is treating boaters as if they are some sort of cash cow. Mooring fees have gone through the roof in recent years. Contrary to popular belief boat owners are not dripping money. For most the boat is their sole source of entertainment & a great family activity. They don’t drive around in expensive cars. They don’t take multiple trips a year. They don’t go to restaurants very often.

    Days off life in the summer revolves around the boat, family & friends. Government is screwing boat owners over big time.
