I've never heard of anyone ever getting hassled for loud pipes here on Florida's West coast.

Another boater's advocate group, the Citizens for Florida's Waterways, already well established on the East coast, is going to be starting a West coast chapter. I will have more news on this shortly.

This group was one of the two sponsors of the "Boater's Rally" (to save Family boating, fight the manatee madness, and stop holding up dock permits) held last Saturday, March 12, which I organized the Venice site. For unknown reasons, Standing Watch did not want to participate or help out. I thought that was very odd of them to not be involved with what they are supposed to be protecting.

We are going to war against the Save the Manatee Club. For far too long legislation has been based on their opinions and their opinions alone. And now scientific fact appears to be heading in the opposite direction as their ranting would have people believe.

Stay tuned for upcoming details.

Last year at the OSS race in St. Pete, the course was practicly in the middle of the bay because they were worried about the manatees. The year before at the APBA race you could actually see the names on the boats from the shore. I have a feeling thats why St Petes not on the schedual this year. But thanks for answering my question. I have a big block with dry stainless marine exhaust and i was wondering if i should get mufflers for it before I paid a ticket.
