Boating Matters: Stand Up and Take Action!

Tell Congress: Ratify USMCA – Support Free and Fair Trade

Right now, Congress is debating whether to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) – a critical trade deal that will replace NAFTA. And we need to make sure they do just that.

Free and fair trade in North America is essential to the recreational boating industry – 40% of annual U.S. boat and engine exports go to Canada and Mexico, and nearly 20% of U.S. boat and engine imports come from those two countries. The continued success of our industry depends on these critical partnerships and USMCA will preserve and strengthen them.

USMCA is good for boating because it:

  • Maintains rules of origin for boats and engines;
  • Streamlines processes to reduce burdensome regulations;
  • Protects intellectual property and extends copyright terms;
  • Ensures long-term stability for business planning;
  • And much more.

Contact your members of Congress today and tell them to support USMCA.
