This vibrant and healthy subculture is under considerable threat from gentrification being pushed by the neon-liberal agenda. Boaters with out moorings are largely liberation, which means they are a pushover for sustained bureaucracy, they will fight as individuals and drop away one by one sulking like children or retreating to the drugged periphery to bitch. As long as the change is slow and forcefully they have little power to resist – if the is a big push against them they can combine for a short time and push back as they are competent people, but this will soon falter as they gain ground against the bureaucrats.
How will this community survive the next 5-10 years is a real question that needs answers.
