I spoke with an aid for Congressman Ron Paul today and he indicated that this was currently failing due to a lack of interest in congress... <BR> <BR>Read here: <BR><a href="http://www.sportsmenslink.org/issues/legislation/pdf/07NMMABoatingActRelease.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.sportsmenslink.org/issues/legislation/pdf/07NMMABoatingActRelease.pdf</a> <BR> <BR>and watch here: <BR><a href="http://www.boattest.com/nmma.aspx" target="_blank">http://www.boattest.com/nmma.aspx</a> <BR> <BR>Write your congressmen unless you want a $800-$2000 yearly boating permit to be required by the EPA! <BR> <BR><font size="-2">BTW, I think this is a positive post on my part...</font>

Letters sent. I don't understand why permitting recreational boats would be so expensive, though? You know what they do, and how they are used - just hand out permits as long as your boat is a normal recreational-use boat. I suppose I missed the part where they say periodic detailed inspections are required in all cases?

Yo, Robert, <BR>What boat are you in? I'm at Bartlett every chance I get and don't think I have ever met you. Have you seen my white and red SAN? Anyhow, if you ever need a pull just hit me up! ****icacca Riders Unite!
