Boat owners group formed in Michigan

The Michigan Boating Industries Association, which serves marine retailers and manufacturers, announced the creation of the Boaters' Association of Michigan.

The association's members are boat owners, boating enthusiasts and those who support boating in Michigan. Its mission is to create a voice for Michigan's boaters to effectively express their views on legislative and regulatory issues that impact the boating lifestyle.

In addition to representation in Lansing, member benefits will include discounts at participating marine businesses and boat shows, and networking at social events.

A new Web site will act as a portal for association members, as well as all boaters in Michigan. A Boaters' Association of Michigan members-only section will be included as well as a comprehensive product and services guide for boaters.

"We are pleased to be able to unite and organize boaters in Michigan so they can effectively express their views on legislative and regulatory issues that impact the boating lifestyle," said Van Snider, president of the Michigan Boating Industries Association, in a statement.
