rev. dave: blatz514: rev. dave: It helps casinos too. That is good. I need to visit one of those nice floating casinos.

Shiat.  We were in St. Louis a few years ago and wanted to go on one of those floating money takers.  They wanted to charge us to get on the thing.  You shiating me?  I'm gonna drop $50 and you wanna charge me for that??

/Not CSB

Really? Never been to one, wtf with the cover charge?


Got me.  We did a 180 and went back to the bars.

ZAZ: Did the city screw itself by proceeding under the wrong law? If the alleged vessel is merely a floating house the city should be able to place a lien for city services and proceed under state law rather than federal law.


Florida won't confiscate your home, they'll just put a lien on it until it is paid off... these people wanted to crush the guy, not just inconvenience him for dock fees. I mean, outbidding the public would be pretty unheard of in most states, since the idea is that you're auctioning it to get money, not to spend it. Mostly though, Florida doesn't confiscate homes even in bankruptcy, that's why when the Energy and Tech bubbles were bursting, millionaires were trading homes for ones in FL and scam artists were putting all their money into the home in FL, so they could emerge from bankruptcy with millions in assets still. Ddin't really pan out well, with the real estate markets crashing soon afterwards... but there was method to the madness.

Larger Florida cities have been at this for years. Politically connected investor sees a cozy marina "community", attempts to get the whole area rezoned out from under the established community, if able (all too often) rework marina into gated residential"community" at a big profit.


/used to live on a houseboat in Biscayne Bay on the North side of the island the guy in the article moved to
//there are no more houseboats in Biscayne Bay

It helps the ones that just float. The actual "riverboat" casinos that can move are still subject to Admiralty law.

Subby, don't knock admiralty law. One of my first interviews after law school was in a firm that specialized in it. The firm was Farragut, Dewey, Nimitz and Rickover.

/Actually, in law school, whenever I saw admiralty law listed or mentioned, I always had to smile at the absurd images it brought to mind.

wildcardjack: Okay Florida, now get unpowered houseboats declared mobile homes and we can have the tornadoes in the marinas for all the grins my bemusement can handle.


technically a tornado on water is called a water spout

admiralty law is pretty fun. i was in an admiralty law society in law school. fun stuff and some wild procedural devices.

/ of course i'm in one of the three or four big places for admiralty law in the us, so we tend to take it a little more seriously than 80% of the country.

My favorite is the little silver oar that is displayed and the bell that is rung in Admiralty cases...

lecgbe: US SC ustice Stephen Breyer - "Not every floating structure is a 'vessel'," Breyer wrote for the majority. "To state the obvious, a wooden washtub, a plastic dishpan, a swimming platform on pontoons, a large fishing net, a door taken off its hinges, or Pinocchio (when inside the whale) are not 'vessels'."

Millennium: I know a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick maker who would take issue with that first example.


He's a maker, a breaker, and a title taker. Like the little old lady who lived in a shoe, if cuts were kids he would be you. Not lyin' y'all, he's the best I know, and if I lie my nose will grow like a little wooden boy named Pinocchio, and you all know how the story go.
