“Safety Moments, presented at CCA Stations and Posts”

      An email from marine safety expert Ed Huntsman caught my eye. For those of you who haven’t run across Ed, he was the Recreational Boating Safety Program Manager at the Eighth Coast Guard district for many years, covering the Gulf Coast states and most of the Central United States.

      Attached to the email was a 14-page extract from the Federal Register, describing a regulation that had been changed, how the Coast Guard had gone about getting input, what some of that input was, and how they reached their final decision.
