Dear PWC Enthusiast,

The BOAT Biscayne Coalition believes the voices of PWC owners need to be heard by your local elected officials. Itís time law abiding riders enjoy the same safe and reasonable access as do all other boats on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) through Biscayne National Park.

On December 19, 2007, the Monroe County Board of Commissioners will act on a recommendation from the county Marine and Port Advisory Council to sign a letter urging the park service to cease the discrimination and allow for the safe passage of personal watercraft between greater Miami and the Keys. This is about fairness, common sense, and most importantly safety, and your voice is needed.

Please join with BOAT Biscayne Coalition members from the American Watercraft Association (AWA) and other freedom of access activists by attending the Monroe County Commission meeting on December 19, 2007 at 2:30 p.m.

Monroe County Board of County Commissioners meeting

Marathon Government Center

We know this is a busy time of year, but a few hours of your time will go a long way to securing free and equal access along the 17 miles of the ICW that traverses through Biscayne and which only PWC are prohibited from. These elected officials work for you, and they need to hear from you.

If you donít reside in Monroe, yet own a second home there, you have a voice. If you have family, friends or know fellow PWC owners in Monroe, please urge them to join you in contacting the commissioners. Weíre asking for fair and equal, commonsense treatment, and most importantly safety. What could be more right?

At a minimum, please e-mail the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, George Neugent. He can be reached at Please urge him to support fairness, equality and safety by signing a letter to restore personal watercraft access to the ICW for Floridians.
