Ted
Thanks for the heads up. I wonder how this would effect Va. boaters that use the Potomac River. The river is MD to the high tide mark.

Speed Limits will be next...

Keep an eye on these people!

They probably don't even own a boat and yet they want to legislate it to death....

Someone I spoke with familiar with this proposal tells me it's a result of the taxi tragedy. This is a "feel good" kind of bill from a policitian with no clue. Had the passengers been wearing PFD's in that blowover, there would have been more fatalities as a result of people not being able to exit the capsized vessel.

If you live in Maryland, you should send an email to your representative and come to the next CBPBA meeting on Tuesday to voice your opinion.

Tim is right, speed limits and more 6mph zones are right around the corner.

Do we know who is sponsering the bill, or wrote it?

Trevor is my brother-in-law. He and my sister just sold their cuddy cabin last year and bought a 17' boston whaler since they live way back in a 6 knot zone for boats over 18'. Needless to say, he got real upset about the idea of this.

just in from Senator Dyson;

Dear Mr. Freeman:
Thank you for contacting me regarding this matter. I am absolutely opposed to this House bill and will do everything I can to fight it if it comes to us in the Senate. It is bad public policy.
Once again, thank you for participating in the democratic process and letting me know how you feel about bills of importance to you in Annapolis.
Sincerely,
Maryland Senator Roy Dyson

We heard last night at a club meeting that Marine Trades is involved and now the delegates say they made a mistake when they wrote it. It is likely to be amended to include passenger boats like water taxis, but not recreational craft. It could still make life difficult for charter captains and dinner boats though. There doesn't seem to be any support, but you never know what the nannies will do next.....

exactly, it makes no sense to legislate the whole bay based upon an accident that happened a year ago. If I remeber correctly it was the wind that did it, they may as well try to legislate the wind
