Florida attempting to ELIMINATE anchoring in the State
This is a call to arms to ALL boaters. Florida is about to
attempt to totally eliminate anchoring in the state. That is not a joke.
According to Mike Ahart, of Waterway Guide:
'So what' you say? You don't live or boat in Florida? These restrictions, if passed, will be viewed by other states as a means to regulate anchoring there. This DOES affect you. And even if it doesn't, I and your fellow boaters are asking for your help in turning this foul tide.
What can you do? First of all - join Seven Seas Cruising Association who are representing
cruising boaters at this meeting. You can also join their Facebook page and
show your support there, although to be frank, the organization can use your
$52 annual dues to fight this effort. Just give up one cup of coffee daily for
the next two months and you've paid for your part in this fight.
Finally - I'm planning on attending this meeting and speaking out for
all cruisers. However, that is an expensive undertaking,
involving an overnight stay in Vero Beach, transportation to and from Vero
Beach, meals and a car rental. It's not an expense I can afford to take on for
myself. I'm going to need the help of my fellow cruisers for this one.
