What they should do is permamently exempt recreational boaters from the operation of the act. Why should we have to go to those turkeys with hat in hand every 5 years and beg, "Please, Sir, continue our exemption." It sounds to me like a way to induce Boat US and other recreational boating lobbies to contribute to their campaign funds. Why else would they dangle a Damocles sword over our heads, if they don't really need to regulate us? If they ever decide that they need to regulate recreational boaters, they can pass new legislation at that time. I hope those of you who support big government are paying attention.
