I've never been a commercial boater and I object. There are so many people applying for the lottery and then so many people left over grabbing cancelations. My opinion, remember MY opinion so you don't have to like it or believe it, is that if you grab any permit during the permit season, commit and go, or cancel with enough time so others can grab it and go. If you can't do those things, maybe you shouldn't apply. I do think the same cancellation rule should apply if you take a permit within 21 days of the launch.
The cancellation policy is directly on the page where you apply for permits. Maybe he men can read at an 8th grade level so call me a he man if you want.
I get your frustration but really, you're so mad you're going to take this all the way to the interior secretary? I'm sure Trump's pal is really going to listen and fix this. Like most things, I've been wrong before. Good luck in your endeavors.
