Download New BoatUS Advocacy Tool: Engage With State Gov

ALEXANDRIA, Va., January 29, 2018 – With the adage that “all politics is local,” Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) offers a new online Advocacy Tool for recreational boaters. The tool serves as a one-stop shop for federal and state recreational boating issues and gives recreational boaters the option to track relevant bills by state, find contact information for elected officials, speak to policymakers to express their views, and advocate for boating issues in their community.

As the boater’s voice in Washington, D.C., BoatUS closely follows federal legislation and regulations that matter to boaters and boating. Using the Federal Action Alerts tool, boaters can find out if action is needed on a particular bill or rule that would impact boating.

State Action Alerts tool tracks bills relevant to recreational boating by state as well as their status and sponsor, providing a simple and effective way to be kept informed of upcoming legislation and alerts that matter.

A key to affecting change is knowing your elected representatives and learning how to contact them. Using the Find your Elected Officials search box, boaters will get a complete list of contact information for federal, state and local elected officials.

“At the federal level, when we speak to Congress, BoatUS represents more than a half-million dues-paying members,” said BoatUS Government Affairs Manager David Kennedy. “Our new Advocacy Tool magnifies that strength and brings it to the state level, giving boaters the chance to have their voices heard when boating issues are being debated.”

“With significant issues, such as the mandate for more ethanol in gasoline or funding for dredging and infrastructure improvements to protect our waterways, boaters can use the BoatUS Advocacy Tool to remain engaged,” added Kennedy.

BoatUS is the nation’s only recreational boat owners group with a dedicated government affairs team speaking up for boaters. For more go to Advocacy.BoatUS.com

Hurricane Irma Preparations at Riverhouse

Hurricane Irma created a great deal of stress and tension for everyone in the state of Florida last week. At the Riverhouse Reef & Grill, we were force to suspend service for 3 days as we prepared for the worst and prayed for the best.  Thankfully, the Irma passed us by, causing only minimal damage.

As a restaurant located on an island at the end of Regatta Pointe Marina’s main pier, the Reef & Grill felt especially exposed in the days leading up to the storm. Particularly as early forecasts predicted a potential category 4 hurricane.  Our staff had to go over our entire property removing all items susceptible to strong winds or heavy vibrations.  We stored away all outdoor furniture, cleared our shelves of glassware and anchored items too large to move.

We were blessed to see Irma pass by much weaker than predicted.  Our area lost power, but only very briefly.  No food was lost, and our restaurant suffered only minimal cosmetic damage.  It took us just one day after the storm passed to get back up and running. Our hearts go out to those who were not as fortunate. 

Thank you to all our staff for all of their hard work in preparing for the storm, and for our customers who look forward to serving as we put this hurricane behind us.
