We are reposting this News Release From BoatUS Dated April 6, 2017 because of recent postings on RiverBills Boaters Group about boaters receiving official looking Vessel Documentation Renewal Notices


Official-Looking Vessel Documentation Renewal Notices Can Lead to Confusion and Higher Costs


ALEXANDRIA, VA, April 6, 2017 – Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) Consumer Protection Department is advising boaters with vessels having a US Coast Guard Certificate of Documentation to be wary of any letter arriving by US mail offering renewal. An increasing number of BoatUS members have complained that these letters direct them to websites that may be mistaken for the actual US Coast Guard Vessel Documentation Center located in Falling Waters, West Virginia, and appear to show a significant increase in the annual fee to renew US Coast Guard (USCG) documentation.

BoatUS advises that while the USCG does send official annual renewal notices by US mail, other notices being received by members are not from the USCG but rather third-party companies whose name or return addresses may appear similar to that of the official USCG Vessel Documentation Center. Members of the half-million boat owners group report the letters look like “real” USCG communications. Some examples members have forwarded to BoatUS do not have any disclaimers noting that they are not official USCG correspondence.

While third-party companies may legitimately provide services to assist with vessel documentation renewals, the USCG’s own renewal process is simple for most vessels and the price, $26, is often much lower than what third-party services may charge. To renew, go to the USCG National Documentation Center website at www.uscg.mil/nvdc and click on “instructions and forms.”

To be documented, a vessel must measure at least 5 net tons and, with the exception of certain oil-spill response vessels, owned by a US citizen. Boats about 27 feet in length or longer generally meet the weight requirement.

If boat owners wish to file a consumer complaint about this or any other boating-related advertisement or company, BoatUS welcomes boaters to visit http://my.boatus.com/consumer/dispute.asp and click on “send us a complaint” button.

BoatUS also advises boaters who may have received mail that they believe is misleading or deceptive may contact the US Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455 or through its website https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov

News Release From BoatUS


Do You Boat on USACE or National Park Waters?

.


ALEXANDRIA, VA, April 25, 2017 -- Hundreds of thousands of boaters enjoy the nation’s vast holdings of US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) or US Department of Interior lakes and waterways every year. Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) believes that public-private partnerships have an important role to play in maintaining, improving and growing boating access on waters managed by the federal government.

Yesterday, with an agenda to look at improving visitor experiences on public lands and waters, BoatUS joined a coalition of more than 30 representatives of the Outdoor Recreation Industry Roundtable (ORIR) for a meeting held at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, with top-ranking officials from the US Department of Interior (DOI). Later in the day ORIR members including BoatUS headed to Washington to meet with DOI Secretary Ryan Zinke.

Some federal recreational boating facilities date from the Eisenhower era and are in need of maintenance and modernization. Improving connectivity, implementing electronic passes, more efficient fee collection, and the role that private industry can play in upgrading facilities were just some of the topics discussed.

BoatUS Manager of Government Affairs David Kennedy, shared this April 24 ORIR statement: “Meeting participants identified access as a crucial area where the private sector can help federal partners improve visitor experiences in the great outdoors…discussed the negative impact of access restrictions…[and the need for] closer management partnerships with state fish and wildlife agencies.”

Asian Carp Update

Michigan Senator Vows To Fight WH Over Carp Report Delay........

 

Tuesday evening, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich. alleged that the White House is holding back a report on how to battle Asian carp, with no word on when it may be released.

 

Stabenow met with a bi-partisan group of about a dozen members of Congress Tuesday night, who represent the Great Lakes States, to press the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other agencies for answers on why the report has been delayed.

 

Stabenow says that there was no good answer given, however, administration officials said that inland barge operators, represented by the American Waterway Operators' group, raised concerns that delayed the report from it's expected release on February 28........

Congratulations to Steven Wengler on breaking the state record by catching a 1-pound, 14-ounce skipjack herring on the Mississippi River.
 

Missouri Department of Conservation

St. Louis angler snags state-record skipjack herring


ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reports Steven Wengler of St. Louis became the most recent record-breaking angler in Missouri when he snagged a skipjack herring on the Mississippi River. The new “alternative method” record fish caught by Wengler on April 17 weighed 1 pound, 14 ounces. Wengler’s recent catch broke the previous state record of 1-pound, 10-ounces, caught in 2016.

“I was shocked to pull a skipjack herring in the boat while snagging, because I was trying to snag spoonbill,” Wengler said.

He added he was trying to catch the state-record skipjack herring on his rod and reel earlier in the day, but wasn’t having much luck; so he started snagging for spoonbill instead and caught a record skipjack herring.

“It’s kind of crazy to think about because I wanted to catch a state-record skipjack herring, but wasn’t planning on catching one the way I did,” Wengler said.

Wengler caught the state-record skipjack herring for the pole-and-line category last year on the same date. But that record was broken earlier this year. Now he holds the new “alternative method” record for skipjack herring.

“I’m really happy to be back in the record books, but I’m still going after the pole-and-line record for the skipjack herring,” he said.

MDC staff weighed the skipjack herring on a certified scale in Defiance. Wengler said he gave the skipjack herring to MDC to use for research.

“This is the fifth state-record fish so far this year. 2017 is shaping up to be a year for state-record fish,” said MDC Fisheries Programs Specialist Andrew Branson. “The mild weather we have had means more anglers are fishing, and catching big fish.”

Missouri state-record fish are recognized in two categories: pole-and-line and alternative methods. Alternative methods include: throwlines, trotlines, limb lines, bank lines, jug lines, spearfishing, snagging, snaring, gigging, grabbing, archery, and atlatl. For more information on state-record fish, visit the MDC website at http://on.mo.gov/2efq1v

Lower Mississippi River Cruising

ACL Accepting Reservations For New Riverboat........

 

American Cruise Lines has announced that they are accepting reservations for the first of their modern riverboats, one that has yet to be named.

 

The 200 passenger riverboat is set to launch on the Lower Mississippi River during the fall of 2018.  The new riverboats will not be paddlewheelers, but more like the riverboats found on European rivers.  ACL intends to build five of the modern riverboats.

 

Currently, a 345 foot riverboat is under construction at Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Salisbury, Md.  The cabins will be larger than aboard other riverboats. and will face outward with private balconies.  There will be no inside cabins, but there will be a 4 story atrium in the center of the riverboat........
