The business of small boats has been enduring a maturing process for a great many years. Recently the rate of progress has increased markedly with the introduction of many of the large industrial giants into the industry bringing with them mass production techniques and the many associated sophisticated systems. A satellite to this rapid growth is the development of standards. The goals of such standards are to protect the public and offer guidelines to advise of safe practices. There are a number of types of standards for use in boating each with its own purpose. The organizations promulgating standards each have their specific objectives, however, all are coordinating with each other to minimize confusion and ambiguities. In order to keep the Wonderful World of Small Boating wonderful, it is necessary for everyone from the designer to the user to become involved with the standards writing organizations.
