    This article is written from the point of boaters only. There are landowners too. I was one, on an outer island in the San Juans. Let me tell you about the number of fires set on our island by visiting mariners that went rogue. We have NO RUNNING WATER. All fires put out with bucket brigades. Let me tell you about the group of 20 male kayakers who came up the beach to our property and all pulled out their things at the same time to pee. I have suggestion for motor boaters: do you have a home, too, ? A little rambler in Bellevue or something? How would you feel if so many random people showed up constantly at your home, peeing, yelling, dogs and dog crap, fires, boom boxes, picnics and litter, how would you feel? Can you do the Golden Rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and stay out of peoples private property? Right now are you saying “we stay on the beach”??? YOU NEVER DO!!!!! Don’t lie!

    Want to go for a long walk on the beach. Come to Oregon. People here try to take a more enlightened view of shorelines. The more there is to share, the more there is for everyone. We know that if you buy something near the shore, you’re going to have visitors. If I can float it, doesn’t make sense that I can’t walk it.

      Oregon has one long shoreline, wide, big enough to drive cars on it. Boaters don’t pull up on to the Oregon beaches and walk all over people’s property. It’s an ocean. Washington has thousands of tiny little beaches with homes right behind them. It is islands in a sound. Enlightenment starts with knowing your geography before you make suggestions.

    I can’t stop watching the tracker!!! R2AK is simply the most amazing thing.

    It is this sentence: “That would be good news for mariners who need to take their shih tzu for a walk.”

    If I am driving around your neighborhood, or any neighborhood, should I have the right to park and walk my dog on your property? Or have a picnic on your property? If no, how is that different from me denying you access to my waterfront property?
