Welcome to I Boat. I Vote.
- Did you know the State of New York is diverting your registration surcharge money set aside for boater access programs?
- Are you aware that environmental policymakers are proposing fines and penalties for boaters whose vessels have clinging plants and standing water?
- Have you noticed the slow and steady elimination of marinas and other places for boaters to access the waters of the State?
- Are you tired of the ever increasing cost of boat ownership and restrictions on operations imposed by the state agency leaders?
If you want your voice to be heard as a boater in New York State, join with the largest statewide boating industry organization today - the Empire State Marine Trades Association (ESMTA).
While strengthening the boating industry in New York State, your support of the ESMTA's "I Boat. I Vote." advocacy campaign entitles you to timely and important boating news and information, legislative updates, boater education resources and access to an extended community of recreational boaters who want to keep boating strong in New York State.
