About Families For Boating

Recreational boating and towed water sports continue to grow in popularity, and there are now more ways than ever to enjoy quality time on the water with friends and family. 

Lockdowns and quarantines related to the pandemic have only increased the surge in on-water activity, and this increase has caused concerns among some homeowners. Unfortunately this has lead to some attempts to outright ban ballasted boats and other overly-broad restrictions.

The goal of Families for Boating is to help educate these local communities and create a dialog using factual data and scientific research, information on proper waterway jurisdictions, and important economic and environmental concerns, to assure everyone can share in, and be good stewards of, the waterways we love so much.
