ABYC Standards Week


The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) is holding its seventh annual Standards Week, Jan. 11-15, in Jacksonville, Florida. Events such as Project Technical Committee (PTC) meetings, ABYC standards certification class, and the ABYC annual meeting and cocktail reception are all part of the week and will be held at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront.

Standards Week is a critical step in the development of ABYC standards. Throughout the week, Project Technical Committees (PTCs) will meet to discuss various standards under review. This year, the PTC meeting topics include electrical, hull performance, electrical components, gas detectors, navigation lights, fuel and ventilation, and product interface. Participation is open to all interested parties.

“There is no better technical resource than attending ABYC Standards Week,” said Craig Scholten, product compliance manager of Rec Boat Holdings LLC.  “Our attendance gives us a detailed working knowledge of the standards, allows us to help shape the outcomes and enables our products to be ahead of the compliance change curve.  There is no doubt that working with ABYC has helped me do my job more effectively.” 

 All are welcome and encouraged to attend ABYC’s annual meeting and cocktail reception, held Jan. 11, 7:00p.m-9:00p.m. Attendees will hear about the organization’s latest news, and enjoy music, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails with industry colleagues. 

ABYC’s standards certification class will be held Jan. 11-14. This class provides students with a comprehensive and focused look at the key ABYC standards and is a must for engineers, installers, compliance inspectors and marine surveyors.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
