Default Manatee Madness Rally

Rally Sat. had great turn out. Was well suported by City of Cape Coral,and State. Had a hard time just finding a place to park and the news papers were kind in their coverage. I hope that they gained some financial support to fight this thing as we are the tip of the iceberg.This new move by the Manatee Mania does not only effect the Cape but entire S.W. coast from Tampa to Everglades City.

Way to go guys!! Sat @ 5:00 AM, I was in a Ryder rental truck, on my way to W.Palm Beach to pick up new furniture for our home, and I got back home around 7:00PM or I would have been there.
I'll be at our meeting on 12/4/02 in Melbourne Fl. and I'll try to make the on 12/06/02 in Daytona Beach.
Here's a SCAREY link, it's all the areas on FL. that the USFWS considers to have INADEQATE Protections. It shows all of Brevard Co. has having INADEQATE Protection!!!

http://northflorida.fws.gov/Manatee/...Protection.pdf

Another link from USFWS site is the Public Inputs. Almost all of the comments for more Manatee protection are either $MC FORM LETTERS or the PAID $MC EMPLLOYEEs!!! You find MD quoted in the Public Input Appendix a few times!

http://northflorida.fws.gov/Manatee/...c_Comments.pdf

We are going to get run over with this Manatee BS, if we don't get UNITED and FUNDED to fight this!

First I know it's cute to joke about Manatees, but we boaters in Florida have a serious battle going on just to preserve our right to boat, unlike Ohio. Just be thankful that Zebra clams or what ever aren't CUTE or they would provide the reason for eliminating boating in Ohio.

Has anyone seen the time for Ft.Myers meeting Dec.2nd. ?
