Re: Georgia Livaboards Org

Good News!
The State of Georgia has just modified the Live-Aboard rule so that it will be legal and practical to say on board your boat in Georgia for more than 30 days. A rule change will allow boaters to fill out a simple form to receive permission to be onboard for up to one year in Georgia so long as the boat is docked at a marina that meets the state’s minimum requirements for pump-out facilities. Isle of Hope Marina and just a couple of other marinas currently meet those standards, but I expect that other marinas will upgrade their facilities to take advantage of this rule change. I am heading a committee that will be working with the DNR to finalize the application form in the next few weeks. The rule change will be effective January 1, 2012 . i just found this on the web. it doese not mean that local DNR will stop hurassing. i am interested in attending your meeting this month, if you could email me the time and place. my email address is byrdric16@comcast.net i myself am moving back to the water aand plan to spend 4-6 months in Ga. there are other states trying to enforce such laws but in some cases the federal and corp of engineers have overruled. look forward to attending your meeting
