Thanks for the encouraging words. Please forgive me for slipping in a truly shameless plug for GCPBA membership.
GCPBA is a totally volunteer-run organization. The Board donates considerable time and travel, and even out-of-pocket expenses, to keep it running. But we also have expenses for administrative operations, publications, web site upkeep, litigation, Park Service meetings, and so forth, which require actual money.
Membership in GCPBA is only $25 right now (an increase may be in the works after the first of the year). And we're always ready to take donations -- particularly now when folks are looking for ways to beef up their charitable donations before the tax year ends.
Supporting GCPBA is an excellent way to keep private boater interests in the forefront with the Park Service, as well as to keep the information flowing from them to us. Help us out by logging onto http://www.gcpba.org
and clicking on "Join".
Best to you.
