ABYC Safety Checklist App

Don’t leave the dock without making a safety list and checking it twice — on your smartphone, that is. 

The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) developed a boating safety app called “Boat Essentials-USCG Safety Gear.” It’s essentially a safety checklist intended to help boaters identify the required and recommended safety items to stow on board their boats. ABYC took home an Innovation Award for the app in the “Safety Equipment” category at the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference, held this past September in Louisville, Kentucky.

The app can be downloaded for free at the Apple iTunes store online. A printed checklist is also available and can be obtained by calling ABYC at 410-990-4460.
