Thumbs down WTF? Sarasota Boating

Just got this in the mail.

"No person shall operate any watercraft in excess of idle speed within 300 feet of any land in Sarasota County fronting the Gulf of Mexico" also, the entire ICW is at idle speed at they won't open Midnight Pass!

They tried to limit personal watercraft and found out the new law encompasses all watercraft.

Notice the one small purple area for recreation watersports.

Also, New Pass is a joke! Now, Sarasota only has one Inlet now! Only way out is Venice or Big Pass. Who the hell runs this town?

Maybe time to move again? I'm buying my own island next time!

Look at this map

It's not the old, it's the bleeding heart enviros...they are of all ages.

Especially since they're being brainwashed at early ages.

I'd be all for it. Could be discussed at various boating clubs. Outlaw should (finally) be up and running in two weekends.

Joe, who sent that to you? Russ

Thanks Russ.

This is Bullsh*t! Do they want nothing but kayaks in their waterways? They're already a pain in the ass! Sarasota is a very wealthy city and prides itself on being a boating community. What are they thinking about? Start making calls! Let these idiots know WE WILL NOT BE SILENT! SARASOTA OSO BROTHERS UNITE or we will be forced to give up our passion!

here is the best way to make our point, we do this until we get listened to. on a rotational basis we go out every night in our boats , maybe around midnight or 1 and just parade up and down the icw and all the canals and let them know that this will not stop until we can reach some middle ground. can you imagine 100 monsters a night just idling around up and down all the canals everynight obeying all there rules. after about 2 months of no sleep maybe they will back off.
