Manufacturer comments are extremely important at this stage of the process. If there are no significant comments, the draft will be published in roughly this form sometime this summer. If there are significant comments we will work with ABYC to address those comments and make appropriate changes to the draft. Regardless, we expect that H-29 will be published this summer with an effective date in summer 2009.
We are particularly interested in manufacturer comments related to:
- 29.5.2 Display of Capacity Information
- 29.6.1 Maximum Weight Capacity
- 29.6.2 Persons Capacity in Pounds
- 29.7 Flotation
- 29.8 Inflatable Canoes and Kayaks.
