RULES OF THE RUNG

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR / WHAT TO LOOK FOR -

ABYC Stan­dard H41 lays out the re­quire­ment for boats to have board­ing ac­cess. H41.4.5 states that boats should have a “rigid or flex­i­ble fit­ting or part of the hull [that] al­lows a per­son to re­board from the water with­out as­sis­tance.” Ev­ery ABYC-ap­proved boat should have a means to re­board from the water built into it. Note that it may not al­ways be a lad­der, so look it up in your owner’s man­ual be­fore you head out for a day on the water.
