  • 1.  Fire Protection Amendments for Recreational Vessels

    Posted 8 days ago

    The Coast Guard is amending portable fire extinguishing equipment requirements for recreational vessels that are required to carry fire extinguishers. The USCG is relieving owners of recreational vessels from certain inspection, maintenance, and record-keeping requirements of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 10 (2010 edition).


    This rule does not alter standards for commercial vessels including vessels carrying passengers for hire, or have any effect on recreational vessels that do not use propulsion machinery.

    This rule moves fire extinguishing equipment rules for recreational vessels from subpart 25.30 (Fire Extinguishing Equipment) of subchapter C (Uninspected Vessels) of title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to part 175 of subchapter S (Boating Safety) of title 33, where other recreational vessel rules already exist.

    This final rule is effective April 20, 2022.

    One thought, all safe boating classes need to be revised to reflect this change
