The Water Sports Industry Association said it is now an advocacy partner of Boating United, a national community of boating businesses, enthusiasts and supporters.

Boating United helps shape government policy that affects the boating industry and related activities. Through the partnership, the WSIA hopes to assist with towed water sports initiatives.

“As a group, we’ve seen the progress and admired the efforts of Boating United,” WSIA executive director Denny Salas said in a statement. “And their results are what really impressed us. We are offering our full support and are excited to help make a difference for the future of towed water sports.”

“We're not just weekend boaters; we're employers, manufacturers, taxpayers and citizens who make a difference in all 50 states,” Boating United writes at its website. “That's why we unite as an industry and let our collective voice be heard in Washington and around the country — to show lawmakers that boating matters.”
