NTSB study on VTS and comments requested on Bowditch

Some info from CG that might be of interest:

Mariners, please note:

The National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB) Safety Research Division is conducting a study to assess the effectiveness of Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) systems operated by the U.S. Coast Guard and is seeking feedback from waterway users that operate within a Coast Guard VTS Area. For directions on providing feedback, please visit the NTSB website Safety Study: Vessel Traffic Service or call 202-314-6175.


Your input and/or contribution is requested for the next release of the American Practical Navigator, Pub. 09, more commonly known as "Bowditch". This publication, as you likely know, is the quintessential encyclopedia of navigation. Given that navigation has changed so much over the years, especially in the last decade, your participation in the development and writing of this important and historical book is crucial to both safe navigation as well as documenting the current state of the art of navigation. Please see the flyer at for more information.
