An AGLCA member since 2006, Kevin completed his Loop in 2013 aboard his 48’ Ocean Alexander, “Island Hopper”. His current cruising waters are the west coast of Florida and Kevin will help us become familiar with the area.

Join us for important up-to-date information on the attempts in Florida to restrict anchoring!
Florida Senate Bill 1548 titled “An Act Related to Vessel Safety”, addresses many valid safety issues related to the anchoring of derelict boats. However, it also contains controversial proposals limiting boaters’ ability to anchor in areas “within 200 feet of developed waterfront property” from one hour past sunset until one hour before sunrise.
The Seven Seas Cruising Association leads a team that includes AGLCA, BoatUS and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in the fight against pending restrictions on the right to anchor in Florida.
Joining us to talk about SSCA and their efforts in Florida is Dave Skolnick. Dave is a naval architect and marine engineer, a communications professional, and the immediate Past President of SSCA. He works as a member of the SSCA Concerned Cruisers' Committee (CCC) to support cruisers' rights. Dave owns Auspicious Works in Annapolis, Maryland providing communications and navigation equipment services and delivery support to cruisers.
We'll also be joined by David Doyle, an AGLCA member who is a waterfront landowner in Florida. He'll share his opinion on the issue.
Golld Loopers Bruce and Susand Armstrong will join us to talk about cruising the waters of sunny South Florida and the Florida Keys.

On the March 26, 2015 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Ted Cruz has announced his candidacy. I will explain why he shouldn't be President because of one simple fact. I will also explain why that one simple fact has nothing to do with his place of birth.
Indiana and California are dealing with some very disturbing anti-gay legislation. I will go into each of those topics and give my opinion on them.
I will also be talking to my fellow Disney freak Kaden. Kaden lives in Florida and is very concerned about a new bathroom law that is being pushed in Florida and the impact it would have on transfolk like himself.
Those topics, headlines, tweet of the week, and more at 8pm Central on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That's RIght.
