A free recording is now available of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) one-day conference dedicated to mitigating the risk in designing and building recreational boats. The USCG Risk Mitigation Series 1: Regulations and Electrification event attracted more than 400 participants when it was held virtually on Nov. 9, 2021.
This conference focused on the transition to electric systems in recreational boats, including propulsion and battery power bank alternatives to generators. Panelists gathered online to discuss safety concerns and potential regulations, service training, refit trends and expectations for the future. Participating service professionals, manufacturers, marina operators, installers and ABYC technicians utilized the chat function to interact and the day concluded with an active Q&A session.
The USCG Risk Mitigation Series is designed to be a regular event with interactive and in-depth discussions related to one general topic on a reoccurring basis. The USCG and ABYC are collaborating with industry leaders to pull together the topic for Series 2, scheduled for May 2022.
