Beaufort, NC Town Commissioners Take NO Action on Proposed Anchoring Registration Requirements at 8/28/12 Meeting

 The Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net has published two previous articles about a controversial proposal that would require all boat owners who anchor in Beaufort, NC’s Town Creek or Taylor Creek, to register their vessels with the Beaufort Police Department (see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=94843 and http://cruisersnet.net/?p=95293). Please note that the status reported in the second linked article has now been superseded by the information below.
Thanks to generous input from “Cartaret County News-Times” (http://www.carolinacoastonline.com/news_times/) Managing Editor, Ms. Beth Blake, and reporter Ben Hogwood, we can report that the Beaufort Town Commissioners took NO ACTION on these controversial proposals during their meeting of 8/28/12. Instead, a committee has been appointed to further study the matter. This special group met on 8/20/12, and apparently no agreement was reached.
Our “reading of the tea leaves” here at the Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net is that these proposals may now just wither on the vine and never be heard from again. Then again, that might not be the case at all. All cruisers please be assured that we are watching this situation closely, and will bring you news of any new developments as soon as they occur!
For now though, cruisers can still anchor on the popular waters of Beaufort’s Town Creek and Taylor Creek with no worries. How nice!
