Questions: Can the boating community afford to let others determine our role in the future of our coasts? Are you involved with proactive environmental efforts to support boating? Are you and your agency ready to be more involved with a wide variety of issues? What partnership opportunities exist to insure the future of boating in your area?
Questions: Do we need more regulations in this arena? Do the regulations we have work or not work and what do we need to do about them? In the future, will it be easier to close areas to boating than to control behaviors in those areas? What do we stand to lose?
