Battle for Sunset Lake

A controversial tactic prevents yachtsmen from anchoring in Frederick Karlton's view.

Karlton Fleet

Peter Swanson

Property developer Frederick Karlton recently purchased and parked small sailboats on over a dozen moorings in front of his waterfront property on Sunset Lake in Miami Beach (at right). The reason? He wants to prevent others from anchoring in his view.

This controversy has reached our forums, where one of our members, Canucksailor, is asking others to fight Karlton's fleet by writing in to the Mayor's office.

What do you think? Weigh in at our forum.
