We love them; there is already a serious lack of marina dockage in South Florida. PLUS many marinas are becoming "Docominiums" and selling dockage on long term leases. Hopefully the new regs will ease the pressure and allow existing marinas to expand and new ones to be built.
The down-side of course is more boats, more pollution, more crowded boating areas on weekends. Wow, is this possible? Ever been out on Biscayne Bay on a Holiday Weekend? Nevertheless we support the regs but sincerely hope that some kind of Boater's Operating License is introduced so that at least, every boating person is reading off the same sheet of music in regards, to the do's and don'ts of safety and pollution.
Doesn't need to be a fully fledged Captain's License, but basic boater education should be compulsory like a driver's license or a pilot's license. Why hasn't this happened before? Start by asking the boat builders..!!
