SARASOTA, Fla. October 27, 2011 – On November 3, the possibility of anchoring regulations for recreational boats will be discussed at a meeting hosted by city officials. Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) says that the agenda will center on proposals to limit the number of days a boat can remain on anchor as well as to determine a “set back” limit on how many feet an anchored boat must stay from private or public land. BoatUS is urging boaters, cruisers and sailors, as well as those who benefit from visiting boater spending, to attend this public meeting to have their voices heard.
