Does that include RVs as well? Or do they specifically mention boats? Seems an odd public good law to pass. I would think banning smoking would do more good but be a bit harder to pass.

The first meeting of the organization (all six of us who have been forced to abandon our homes) will take place on Sunday April 6th 2008 in Willmington Island Ga. We hope to have the website up (galiveaboards.org) within the next few days. The focus of the website will be to provide information, and hopefully to organize via the forums and email, the rest of the Ga liveaboards who may not know that DNR has started enforcing this ordinance for the first time in 15 years.

Pass the word, You may be next
