I'm interested in what if at all code is being put into place for boat maintenance . This pass week another boat had problems at sea. As if the Titanic didn't sink. As an electrcian unable to pay my dues for my NFPA membership or electrical liscense. I know that the world seems to wait for NFPA to regulate such matters even on an International level. My code book has already been excepted on an International Stage. After working as a maintenance electrician I understand that people really don't relate the maintenance hand sitting in a room reading a manual while everything is working fine and getting paid well to sit and read it. The necessity of such a hand keeps the company (rather boat,job or home) running like a well oiled machine. Will NFPA be able to bring the boating industry along as it has the rest of the industries along for regular inspection.

I work at NFPA and I was lucky enough to be able to particpate in this experience - to be a firefighter for a day. It was a great opportunity to get a real feel for what a firefighter does and how hard it is. Give it a try. Nancy Schwartz, Fire Analysis & Research
