Boaters' Rights Advocacy Fund
This fund is to collect contributions to help fund boaters' rights advocacy efforts. The current most pressing matter is to ensure anchorages in Florida are kept open for overnight stays. We are expecting several cities to attempt to close their anchorages via bills filed at the state level through their legislative delegations. The primary use of collected funds is to retain a lobbyist to work on our behalf. Excess funds will be used to help offset travel expenses for Association members who travel to Tallahassee to participate in the process. Once that is covered, if we are fortunate enough to still have excess funds, they will be saved for future advocacy efforts.
