The intent of the Seminar was to provide information concerning the need for detailed recreational boating accident data in the development or improvement of present and/or future standards and education programs. The most common accident types (collisions, capsizings and swampings, and fires/explosions) were reviewed. The methodology used for in-depth accident investigations was presented in detail. The Seminar contained three typical accident investigations with a step-by-step analysis of each accident. Included throughout were human factor and psychological elements in operator performance capabilities. Two days of the Seminar were used for laboratory and in-the-water participation with the attendees examining boats, engines, fuel systems, etc., and handling boats underway.
