The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is on the right path in asking for guidance on how to best prevent recreational boating casualties caused by propeller strikes and carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA). In response to the USCG’s release of an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM), the NMMA encouraged the agency to focus on the requirement for deeper boarding ladders, but only after the ABYC standard review process was completed. NMMA also noted that a gate or ladder interlock requirement was premature.
