Coast Guard seeks input on boat safety rules

Volunteers are needed to help craft new safety rules that are being written for older boats — which includes the bulk of Alaska's fishing vessels.
Called the Alternate Compliance Safety Program (ACSP), it is part of the 2010 U.S. Coast Guard Authorization Act and is aimed at vessels that will be 25 years old by 2020, are greater than 50 feet in length, and operate beyond three nautical miles. 
The program will include most of Alaska's fishing fleet — a 2014 maritime study by the Juneau-based McDowell Group shows that the majority of Alaska's boats were built between 1970 and 1989.
