Overview

The Modern History of Recreational Boating Safety explores the 50 year history by not only covering recreational boating safety but also focusing on the organizations that were involved in defining, promoting, and enforcing safe boating.

The primary focus of this publication is modern day recreational boating safety and how it has developed through reducing injuries, preserving the environment and saving lives to become the safe and enjoyable activity that it is today. The numbers of people that boat, the types of boats and even the waters on which we boat have changed over the past 50 years. The Modern History of Recreational Boating Safety will help explain this turn of events. This book will explore the ability of the key organizations to form and expand an effective coalition of public and private entities, including marine and safety equipment manufacturers. The story relies heavily on the archives and records of many different organizations and on oral history interviews with key personnel. It will also highlight the major events in the history of boating safety such as the Federal Boat Safety Act of 1971, the Biaggi Act, and Wallop-Breaux Trust Fund.

The book is a solid, substantive account of boating safety that will serve as both an institutional memory and as a reference work for future professional and volunteers in this field as well as interested students and members of the public. If you are interested in receiving a hard copy of this historical book of recreational boating safety, please contact the NSBC at (703) 361-4294. This would be a great piece to donate to maritime libraries and institutions of maritime service.
