If ABYC are catering to their constituency, we would be wise to learn just who supports the ABYC.
Their membership is primarily marine manufacturers, and professional boat repairers. By far and away, boat builders, repair yards and marine surveyors are the biggest users of the ABYC standards. Very few “Yachties” spend the $179 to join, then another $259 to obtain the “Standards and Technical Information Reports for Small Craft “.
It should be noted that the U.S. Code ofd Federal Regulations (CFR-33, etc), and the Canadian Coast Guard “Construction Standards for Small Vessels” (TP-1332, etc) both refer to ABYC standards.
