........Ok a little harsh but I have not renewed our IWA membership this year. This was based on a feeling they were not fair to the independent boater in the recent CaRT elections for board members. They put forward their own candidates taking the slots the independent boater should have had.
I also have a concern their focus is not as direct as it should be for boaters. I understand there are other users of the canals but we are the biggest investor.
So this year I am out as they say.... still investing in the canals by my higher payments for a bigger boat and inflation plus on the respective fees.
