NMMA urges boaters to fill out Florida anchoring survey

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is urging boaters to complete an online survey seeking feedback on potential anchoring regulations in Florida.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released the online survey based on initial feedback it received during public workshops on anchoring and mooring that were conducted earlier this year. The survey will close on Dec. 7.

Last year, the NMMA helped defeat an amendment to legislation that would have given local authorities free reign to impose laws and restrict access to Florida’s public waterways.

The NMMA said boaters and cruisers rely on anchoring to come ashore to buy provisions, eat in restaurants and create economic activity at marinas, boatyards and other boating-related businesses.
