Boats Needed for Hurricane Relief Efforts


Two days after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, conditions continue to decline. As part of relief, rescue and recovery efforts, the Louisiana Governor’s office has requested assistance from the marine industry. Specifically, officials have asked the industry’s largest trade association, the NMMA’s, to recruit help from its members.

There is a need for boats to use in the effort. Outside of medical personnel, the biggest need right now is for watercraft. Marine manufactures and dealers how are in a position to help should contact NMMA. Communications in the area are difficult, so direct contact with officials is not possible but the NMMA will put interested parties in touch with Louisiana Fish & Wildlife effort.

Interested parties can make contact online or by calling 202-737-9759.
