RBRA Vessel Buy Back Program
On June 23, the Board of Directors of the Richardson Bay Regional Agency approved a Vessel Buy Back Program. Earlier this month, the RBRA delivered the first four checks to boat owners as part of the program, which incentivizes removing anchored vessels from environmentally sensitive waters.
The Vessel Buyback program offers eligible participants money based on the length of their boat ($150 per foot) to move their vessels off an established Eelgrass Protection Zone (EPZ) and other parts of Richardson Bay. The program also conforms with an Agreement reached between the RBRA and the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC), which calls for removal of all illegally anchored vessels from Richardson Bay by October 2026
