Flotation standards for recreational boats.
First a note about the reasons behind the flotation standards. Why is all this stuff necessary?
The below video is running in flash. If you find it distracting turn off the sound. I am still working on a way to allow you the user to start or stop it.
Watch a Power Point Presentation on Flotation. (5.3 MB You must have Microsoft Power Point to view this.)
Select from the following list:
Level Flotation : Mono-hulled boats under 20 feet in length, with outboards greater than 2 HP.
Modified Level Flotation : Mono-hulled boats under 20 feet in length, with 2 HP or less, or manually propelled.
Basic Flotation : Mono-hull inboard motorboats under 20 feet in length.
