I talked to some one at the MLA today and asked about if any one was following up on changing the yearly inspection of rafts to coincide with the 2 year vessel inspection.He said they need 2 or 3 hundred people to contact the coast gaurd and tell them they want the law changed .The coast guard was unaware as to why the law changed to every year. Ther eis a link for contact on the MLA website.maine lobstermens association

Well done, thanks for taking the initiative. Even if we went to an every other year time frame it would be a big help.None of us skimp when it comes to safety equipment but getting porked is getting old.
