BTW. it's a 9 mile idle north from our dock, 3 miles south.
Bottom line: Recreational boaters are not the ones hitting manatees, it's the commercial tugs, barges and ships!
PHUCK the $ave the Manatee club and Jimmy "Stuff-it" too!

Well, the manatees do effect my boating, and I still bear no animosity towards the animal, like FF said, it's the damn people who don't want their waterfront homes disturbed by boats running by. Very few of these people who are lobbying for new laws give a rats azz about the animal. They'd sit right down and dine on Florida Panther and Bald Eagle as long as it doesn't effect their houses.

Talking Re: What the hell is a manatee?

Wasabe,
No panties here, just boxers! Did you go to the website and check it out? How much slower do you want us to go, we are already idling for hours! No boaters have any ill feelings toward the manatee, it's the $MC that we have in our gun sights. We have manatees around our docks all the time, my kids love to see them.
Once again, the approach that the $MC and the gov't is taking is doing more harm than good to the manatee. Don't believe me, check out for yourself
In case you need more data, check out www.standing-watch.org

Or maybe this the website that you are REALLY interested in
http://www.savethemanatee.org/tampabayzones.htm

Happy 4th everybody and be safe.

MD

Animal minds do not develope like humans. That doesn't make them dumb. They lack the capacity in which God gave them. They were around long before Humans.

It saddens me to hear people say such things. I'm not self righteous. It sucks when people can be so careless and thoughtless. They can't help it. Us the pieces of crap can because we have the capacity.
