You can go to college and major in grant writing!

I think our government does like to study everything just to be sure of those unknown unknowns, and the research will never benefit the people.

Aren't you allowed to share expenses with others on your boat? So as long as the money given is just going to expenses incurred along the trip. I thought that's how it was now in the U.S., or are the people sharing expenses for fishing trips really breaking the law but it's not being enforced?
