On a boat with expensive engines or generators, a separate engine survey could save huge headaches later. Make any purchase contingent on the survey.

Bill in Congress Would Preserve Boating Access
December 1, 2011 -- Working waterfronts, those parts of town at the water's edge dotted with marine-dependent businesses like marinas, boatyards and haul-out facilities, are crucial to recreational boating.

Chellie Pingree of Maine has introduced the "Keep America's Waterfront Working Act of 2011" (H.R. 3109) in Congress. BoatUS is urging boaters to ask their Congressional representatives to sign-on as co-sponsors of the bill.
