Storm Clouds on the Florida Anchoring Horizon
March 3, 2015

IMPORTANT ANCHORING RESTRICTIONS!

SB 1548 had been filed in the Senate which would prohibit anchoring overnight within 200 feet of an residential property in Florida.  This is a serious threat to cruisers in the state.  Here is a link form the SSCA with an analysis and reiterating their position.  Attached is a copy of the bill for your review.

Members are encouraged to contact their senators although we have no senators on the Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee in the Senate.  Here are the links to the Pinellas and Hillsborough County Delegations:

The ABWIG still hopes to raise about $30,000 to cover permitting and landscaping costs. Their next town hall meeting is Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. at Century 21 Beggins on US 41.
