ABYC now Law in Canada (pretty much)

With a few exceptions Transport Canada has offically recognised ABYC Standards giving them the force of law.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Thats great. Hopefully, theyll publish what they are and not keep safety behind a pay wall.

Interesting so what does it mean for existing Canadian pleasure craft?

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Nothing. Its an optional construction standard. Your boat is already constructed

Well that’s good, that’s it’s only for new boats.

Does this mean Yanmar motors will be banned in new boats unless they use tinned wire?

If I repower will it have to meet ABYC?

It will affect boat owners when surveyors and insurance companies start insisting that an older boat be brought up to modern standards.

It shouldn't...

If you read the link it says that vessels constructed to ABYC standards will be accepted as an alternative construction standard to the Construction Standards for Small Vessels. Previously only the Construction Standards for Small Vessels were officially recognised, but now both sets of standards are accepted.

If you read TP1332 you'll see that man of the ABYC Standards were incorporated and referenced almost 20rs. ago This is just another step in TC's stated plan of doing away with TP1332 altogether. This was supposed to happen in 2018 but governments being what they are ...........

It has already happened to me. When I was selling my 40 year old boat the surveyor noted that the shore power system did not meet ABYC standards and should be brought up to current standards. As soon as the buyer or insurance company sees that it becomes a mandatory upgrade.

Yipes.

Here is what Part 7 of the Small Vessel Regulations have to say

[I]
702*A pleasure craft shall meet

(a)*the construction requirements of this Part; or

(b)*if its date of construction, manufacture or rebuilding or its date of importation is before the day on which these Regulations come into force, the construction requirements in force on that date.[
/I]
