No matter if you’re a “swabbie” on your first voyage in a sea of recreational boating data, an old salt familiar with the hazards that can sink your boating safety research project, or a deck hand learning the ropes of accident report data entry, you’ve landed at the right location. Welcome ashore!
The Lighthouse was imagined and developed by a charge team of the Engineering, Reporting and Analysis Committee (ERAC). They began with their vision of a place where a community of seafarers could gather---not only to find valuable nuggets of information, but also to help each other through the sometimes rough waters of collecting, understanding, and applying recreational boating data. The site and its contents will continue to evolve, so check back often.
