Paul,

I looked thru the permit, but I haven't read the previous permitting guidelines,the guidleines look pretty cumbersome, or should I say nearly impossible,for the avarage "Joe"; what are the changes from the previous permit?

Also, what if anything is different about this permit from other areas in Fl.?

I will try to make the meeting and represent the interests of SRC MAC, please post the time.

If passed, the new rules could prevent the future use of ships, bridge rubble, and a lot of other traditional reef materials.

The whole things smells fishy to me - Pun intended - Somebody has an agenda

Clay-Doh (1/8/2008)Is it the 1/2 inch thick steel that is the big change?


From 1/8 inch to 1/2 inch, that's a healthy jump.

Lots of folks aren't going to be able to get 1/2 inch. That and it's just heavy shit.

Not to mention the requirement for inspecting the reef every year and submitting the info to the Corp and FWC. WTF!!! Also have a third party on board to monitor EACH deployment and verify compliance???!!! I'm with ya Scott, who pissed these guys off???

This couldbe used by the enviros to stop future ship deployments- very little of the Oriskany is that thick.

I fearthat the environmentalists have infiltrated the ACOE, DEP, and lord knows where else.

How about no reef deployments Nov- April beause ofthe possibility of a right whale. What ever the hell that is. When does the left whale come in?

I wouldn't be surprised if they said no powered vessel one mile of beach March - May because of Migratory Cobia.

They gotta be out of their minds with what there asking. Supervised deployments? What are Robert and Brad going to go on every trip and if so will we need an appointment to deploy? The 500lb. minimum is a joke to. I had a hell of a time with with one on the back at #290 and one on the front at #185 plus three other guys on board to shove them off. I'll be there Paul:hoppingmad
