America's Boating Channel Launches CAPACITY COMPLIANCE
New Video Covers Key Safety Consideration for Smaller Recreational Vessels
The new title will be featured on AmericasBoatingChannel.com, America's Boating Channel on YouTube, and across online social media. The video service most recently debuted "LIFE JACKET WEAR" and "DEFENSIVE BOATING" on July 23 and 30.
"CAPACITY COMPLIANCE" covers complying with the capacity plate permanently affixed to the hull on small vessels. Viewers will learn about how many people can be carried, maximum total weight, and engine size. Also featured are formulas and tables for calculating these limits.
The new video features members of the Chattanooga Sail & Power Squadron, Lake Murray Power Squadron, and Tybee Light Sail & Power Squadron coordinated by squadron field producers David Allen, Ed Garbe, Sue Kuemmel, Charlie Saytanides, and Mike Urquhart.
America's Boating Channel's sixth season of videos, which are premiering throughout the 2022 boating season, includes "FIRE EXTINGUISHER REGULATIONS,"
"NAVIGATING INLETS," which premiered on July 16, will also be featured in America's Boating Channel's "INLET DRONE VIDEOS" video service offering. The new series will provide narrated aerial video coverage of high-traffic US waterway entrances to help recreational boaters prepare for their first sorties through high-traffic waterway entrances. Filming was recently completed at Cape Fear, NC, the first inlet to be covered in the new video service offering. To learn more, email INFO@AmericasBoatingChannel.com. (mailto:INFO@
