      These new laws restrict anchoring in a number of previously available and popular sites. For AGLCA’s perspective, see Florida and Georgia to Restrict Anchoring. Our thanks to Ted Arisaka for asking the USCG to include this in week 3/20 LMNs.

        I agree that it is BS and someone is obviously lining someone's pockets to get this passed. Regarding the discharge rules….the USCG will not enforce the holding tank lockout requirements because its not an NDZ. Local law enforcement can enforce it, but unlike the USCG they can't board your vessel to inspect without probable cause, a warrant, or your permission. Unlike what is stated in the press release, the release of treated waste from a functioning Type I MSD is not a danger to the shellfish beds.

        The ICW in Georgia is horrible; not maintained. Ditto what Peter said and I’m originally from there.

        Run offshore from Hilton Head to Fernandina. Screw Georgia.

        Yes I contacted USCG last week and asked them to put this in their LNM. Sad.
