Florida boating, anchoring and mooring laws can be complicated and very difficult to understand. BoatUS recently published this flyer to help Florida boaters. As I understand it, this is current as of March 2011 and the most current information. For more information click for BoatUS or Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission Anchoring and Mooring. From time to time I’ll be bringing this type of boring, but practical information under the heading “Local Knowledge”. My hope is to expand this category to include many cruising areas, so if you have something that you think would be useful to others under “Local Knowledge”, please comment below so I can contact you.
