I developed an E-course in Capacity and Flotation for Boat Builders, for Professional Boat Builder Magazine. They no longer offer it.  In addition to these web pages  I am offering it as an e-book. Go to Ike's Store to see more
I also have a perfect companion to the Capacity and Flotation Course.  It is an excel spreadsheet that does the calculations to determine the amount of Flotation needed. Easy to use. Go to Ike's Store to see more


FLOTATION

Flotation regulations for recreational boats.

The following slideshow explains the flotation regulations and testing. There are 83 slides.  Use the arrows to move forward or back, or jump to a slide by clicking on a dot. Each dot is numbered. The slide show is a brief introduction and does not contain all the information you need to successfully comply with flotation requirements.  After reviewing the slides close this page and  return to the Flotation page. Pick the type of flotation for your boat and select the link to a page that gives more detail about how to calculate how much flotation is need and where to place it.
