All you need to do is sign up and they will send you critical information on issues important to Michigan Boaters (about 6 emails per year). You can click subscribe on BoatMichigan.org. By joining, boaters can support their favorite past time, strengthen the industries voice in Lansing, and stay informed on boating issues. To join, boaters should go to www.boatmichigan.org
BoatMichigan.org members are boat owners, boating enthusiasts and those who simply want to support boating in Michigan. The mission is to create a voice for Michigan’s boaters to effectively express their views on legislative and regulatory issues that impact the boating lifestyle.
“We are pleased to be able to unite and organize boaters in Michigan so they can effectively express their views on legislative and regulatory issues that impact the boating lifestyle,” said Van Snider, CAE, former president the Michigan Boating Industries Association. BoatMichigan is a division of the MBIA, which has been protecting the boating lifestyle since 1958, through its lobbying efforts in Lansing, efforts to keep rivers, inland lakes and the Great Lakes clean and helping boaters enjoy our natural water resources.”
Recreational boating is a popular outdoor recreation activity. Michigan has around 1 Million registered boats on file. There are many challenges to the future of Michigan Boating,” said Eric Foster, general partner of Belle Maer Harbor, Harrison Twp., Mich. “I highly recommend all boaters join: sailors, power boaters, paddle sport enthusiasts, and anglers. Uniting all segments of our industry can insure Michigan maintains its leadership role in boating nationwide and that we protect boating for future generations.”
