Since this was legal in the 1930s and I know it was because my aunties whe were living at that time were frequent guests, how is it today that the county can use cops to blocade public beach land from high tide to low tide, to 1000 feet out into the water just to stop adults from going to a public beach and drinking alcohol and ride around on rafts and floats. I don't get it. What changed to allow this to happen. Can we get around thie stupid county inforced barricade and ban from our beaches if we moor a boat 3 miles out and ferry in guests by water taxi? why or why not?
