    Collier Co.docks and marina - 08 Apr, 2021

       Collier Co.docks and marinas are being overwhelmed.Go to Goodland,
    Caxambas and Naples Bay as soon as they open, coming back and 
    the parking lots are over flowing.Reasons.....DeSantis declared boating
    essential activity.......catch and release North of Gordon Pass....Dade/Broward
    residents driving over.
        Second and worse problem.....Commercial kayak rentals and those crafts
    with 25hp engines.They pay little or no ramps fees because they unload there
    vessels in the ramps and leave.My suggestion $2000 yearly fee for commercial
    kayaks and Skillcrafts.I don't mind out of county residents but Collier Co. residents
    paid a lot of money and we should have first access.
