This is a very interesting conversation. Only problem is there are contradictions from different posters. Sure would be nice to find the case and then be able to get the real facts from the developer involved. Everybody seems to have comments but no real facts to prove your comment. Hard to believe there are no lawyers on this board that have a intern needing something to do. Would really love to know if AP really can stop you from building a pier in the manner you want. Definitely would change what I have.
