No one cares. They stay off the channels for USCG / the ones boats/ships are legally required to monitor.

They're not really hurting anything so I don't see any problems with it.

Marine VHF used to be much more valuable to seamen before cell phones came along.

I remember the huge towers lining the coast that the Marine Operators used to phone patch people's calls.

All the duplex channels are long dead now and are being given out for experimental use last time I checked.
Why are marine radios more popular in trucks th an CB radios? Is it the range?
