USP, whilst I sympathise completely with the plight of live-aboards in the US, would totally oppose any increasing regulation here, and have no desire to go over old ground, my gripe is against YouChoose and this method of getting signatures - not the issues you describe.

Who are they anyway? A political lobby group? If not, are they really going to help your situation? If so, how do they plan to help?? Or are they just scamming emails for some nefarious purpose?!?

I don't know the anwers to any of those questions, but I do know that their bloody widget slows down loading of every page on Sailnet. If it does actually help your situation, surely it can be moved to the front page of the forums - no??

Thank you for your understanding.
