    Fisher Island Florida is in the news again.

    Fisher Island Florida is in the news again.
    Last month I was in Orlando running some errands so I drove my rental car down to Miami during some down time.
    Unbelievable wealth down there.
    Florida is known for having the absolute best homestead protection laws in America. There is no limit on the size or amount of homestead protection in Florida. (second only to Texas)
    In comparison California only protects the first $75,000 of a homesteaded estate.

    There are still lots of Yogurt and coffee shops (I recognized one ice cream shop from the 80’s). There must be lots and lots of money in Yogurt and coffee.
    I live in and CALIFORNIA and I was amazed at how much money there still is down there.
    All that money must have been “earned” a while ago, because all I noticed were very very working class suburbs with the occasional billionaire enclave.


    $400,000 dollar cars everywhere.

    I drove all around the beach cities back and forth across the causeways and noticed one thing.

    These places are two feet above sea level. The flood maps say 6 to ten, but I was there, I saw it. They are two feet above sea level .

    Average income self reported at 2.2 million dollars a year.

    How is it possible that this place has not gone under 15 feet of water at least a few times in the last 80 years? I mean, how is that possible?
    Why isn't every metal detector at least water resistant? A $7 drugstore flashlight is guaranteed for life to 10 feet. If a squirrel piss*s onto the face of my sov... well.... thats another forum.

    Disclaimer: Most any and all artifacts or valuables mentioned have been found on property that was originally aquired in the 1847 United States of America invasion of Mexico.

    Because rising oceans are a hoax. If builders bankers and insurers are still operating in Florida, then youre safe.

    I think the global warming due to man induced CO2 emissions may very well be a hoax, but the oceans are rising, no doubt. The earths cyclical position to the sun is causing a normal warming cycle just as it has every 400 years or so. The business end of the ten thousand year cycle would put many large cities under 100 feet of water.
    I do business on Galveston Island and only in the past ten years more land has gone under water then in the entirety of its recorded past. In August of 2008, the first floor parking and laundry area in my canal home went under to the 9 foot level for 10 hours before receding It's very very difficult to understand if you haven't actually experienced hurricane flood water storm surge first hand.

    That year the flood insurance went form $895 a year to $4300, so yes the bank and insurance companies "operate " but they have no "skin in the game"

    Federal disaster relief does all the paying off. Insurance companies and banks just process and record.

    The entire Miami barrier island, the proximal mainland, and the sand bars that would later become fisher island and coconut grove went under to the ten foot level in 1926.

    Florida has been underwater several times and also has been the size of Texas a few times! Just not in our narrow time frame we tend to look at things in. I used to routinely fish a reef that was 18-22 miles off Sebastian Inlet. It had a distinct 5-10 ft. drop that holds all types of fish. It basically runs the entire length of tClick image for larger version.

ID:	1803640 the state. During the last ice age it was the coastline. Conversely you will not find dinosaur fossils in Florida because it was totally submerged when they roamed the earth. Don't worry about all those rich South Floridians, they will jump in their fancy cars & high tail it to Atlanta!

    You are all WRONG. Before man, all of the planet was the Garden of Eden. Bad humans ruined it like they ruin everything else. Think I'm lying? Well just ask any Liberal and they will tell you it is so, and you know they wouldn't lie. After all are you going to believe the science and evidence or the Democrats?

    There once was a man who lived in a house. The man noticed that his house was on fire. He didn't believe in science but that's ok you didn't need science to identify a fire, so he picked up his phone and dialed 911. The fire department arrived and told him that he needed to get out of the house because it was on fire. The man asked the fireman who he voted for. The fireman didn't see how that mattered but he told him how he had voted. The man disagreed with the fireman's choice in voting. The man told him to take his politically opposed self and leave.... so the fireman left. He sat in his house and picked up his religious text "this would help the situation" he exclaimed. Then his house burned down and he was dead.

    My family were commercial Fisherman, We probably saw you a few times. We would pass the reefs, the tourists and the locals in our shrimp trawlers and or fishing boats (depending on the season) and every now and then bring up what I now think were mammal or mamoth fossils in the nets and occasionally other interesting stuff.
    It was unbelievably hard work.
    4 hours sleep usually during the day for three days strait. Absolutely completely covered in slime all the time. We mended nets, cut bait, baited hooks cleaned fish and repaired the boats al day and night long.

    We never took pictures of fish, not once in my entire life. We never thought to do it once. It just never ever crossed any of our minds to bring a camera to take pictures of each other or of fish. Now I wish we did.
    After five days out we usually had about 1500-3500lbs of Grouper, Warsaw grouper, Mangorve Snapper, Red Snapper Marlin (rare) , Tarpon (bait) and occasional relics that are still around somwhere.
    The low end of that range meant I was getting my A** beat at least twice on the way back to the dock at Grant. )LOL)

    My parents paid cash for everything they had including their three bedroom home behind Rathman Chevrolet (Melbourne) and the fishing boats too.
    We paid cash for food and all utility bills , I remember My father had one credit card for fuel from the occasional Marina that did not take cash.
    Inspire of having no bills and being completely financially independent we lived like we never had any money at all.

    I'm just curious, Did this guy have flood insurance?

    You have my respect for your hard work. I knew a couple of commercial guys, once went out with Dave Lewis for Kings. Fun for me but I didn't have to go everyday even when the seas were kicked up! Nothing wrong living off cash. I've been doing that since my divorce in 94. I made a promise to never be in debt again. We sold our boat this past summer, getting old & knees are shot! Still go with my buddy though but I pick the weather carefully! Fishing has been going downhill for years. Too many people fishing 24-7-365. Regs are helping, Red Snapper fishing is pretty good but almost no season. Fishing in theKeys is getting real bad.

    Anyone ever consider, it may not be the water rising,
    it may be the land sinking? js

    Lots of wealthy, and I mean WEALTHY, foreigners here!
    Capitalism is definitely thriving here, atm...

    Do some of you all, really try, to run a thread into the ground?
    *gotta always try to get the comment in quick before lockdown
    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.
