I went back and found the text from an email just I sent BoatUS Consumer Affairs division ......
I included my membership number and other pertinent info about who I am. Hope it helps and I at least get a response from them.
To whom it may concern,
I have been a member of this fine organization since I bought my first boat at age 22. I have since moved into "performance boats" that BoatUS will not insure but have still been a vocal proponent of the help BoatUS provides all boaters and the value of insuring boats with BoatUS.
With that, I am concerned about something going on in the state of Alabama. Alabama's Governor Riley has signed HB 756 into law which was recently challenged and upheld in court. This ruling makes certain boats illegal on 3 Alabama lakes based solely of size and/or speed. I converse occasionally with one of the parties involved in this "fight" and was told BoatUS was contacted but not interested in joining their cause. Please tell me I have been mis-informed.
Of even more concern is that the initial proposed law would have effected 11 state lakes. Under some local opposition, the proposal was reduce to just 3 lakes. Now, just 1 month after getting this law passed on those 3 lakes, a 4th lake is being targeted for the same legislation. A precedence has been set in the first ruling, I ask BoatUS in get involved and keep this from happening at more and more lakes across the country.
I would be happy to provide more consumer input and put you in touch with the Plantiff's who fought (and lost) the first "battle" with the state of Alabama and it's high powered Power Company.
