The latest economic upheaval (6-7 years worth) and these rediculous fuel prices have all but killed the boating industry. New boat builders have fallen like flies. The bigger the boat the worse it gets. Add to that the skyrocketing cost of fuel, insurance and maintenance and you have a once popular activity that is going by way of the Edsel. To put a cherry on top of it all, our commercial fishermen as getting so restricted with their available catch they're looking for alternative ways to make a living.
So go ahead and kill it! Tax it to death like everything else and ruin it for everyone, but let's make sure that we support our local entitlement recipients and the illegal aliens for generations to come! They really need their polished 24's and I-Phone 5's to keep the drug business booming!
