This is the location. land of 3-4 inch draft fishing boats so they don’t get stuck if the tide goes out too fast. Now I realize some of or viewers and contributors still “champion” thought processes developed during the “civil right” movement era,so just for the sake of “fiction” and not arguing the value of discriminating, suppose the two characters in this video are out feeding their extended families of sixty and they mostly all live in a trailer park except uncle Julio and aunt Yolanda have a home and a yard with a few boats in it. Julio is a “licensed” landscaper or mason (a totally ridiculous concept shoved upon the public), and its his brother Jose (no job (like me) but is satisfied with his life based upon the fact that he can stack bricks twice as fast as his brother and actually showed him how to relocate aloe vera plants and cactus 15 years ago before the government seized the lands and made him a “poacher”. he won’t pay traffic tickets, property taxes, child support, or any other bullshitas he knows he is right and “they” are wrong), and his son Julito (works at 7/11 at $7.25/hr) are the ones shown fishing in 11-24 inches of water. https://youtu.be/jxPapTYwkXA
Although I’m just not accustomed to the “country voice” the music is not all that bad.
This is the "market" for nearshore seasteading, along with cut rate 6-pack charter captains and temporary visitors to South Padre island who don't want to pr $50-70 a night/pp for a room in season or $25-40 out of season. Everybody saves 60-75% of their regular "rent/slip rental" budget by joining the "club". And everybody, who likes fish/seafood can cut their food bill in half also. Some residents who can't even get minimum wage jobs have a convenient base of operations to sell hotdogs/fruit/beverages/sunglasses/firewood/fishing gear...etc, as they can just walk or push a 10$ inflatable air mattress loaded with "goods" to shore. Part time artists who can't quit their day jobs now can rent their house out, quit their stinking job and still pay into their "benefits" hiring themselves to do whatever they want. Laguna Madre is only about 1/2 the size of Manila Bay so figure it can support 1/2 of 25million maybe less cause the water isn't as deep, say 10,000,000 at a truly competitive rate of $17-20 per person "yacht club" dues quarterly.
Just GOT to hit the “regulators” too hard too fast.
Can you imagine them trying to regulate and distinguishing between the newly banned “yacht clubs”, the “illegal” new floating cabins (previously banned), the totally illegal floating gas stations/banks/supermarkets…I can’t
After a while with enough cluttering of “yachts” in the way it would no longer be necessary to use used tires/bamboo and other buoyant waste materials. A simple concrete pillar with compacted waste(very little considering the anti-consumer that would flock to the community) inside would probably become the foundation of choice.
