Thanks for the info here. I've started researching requirements for boat building. I haven't seen the boatbuilder's handbook until now. I've seen lots of references
to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 33 and others. Also some of the CFRs are referenced in the handbook. The most updated versions are available for download from the Government Printing Office
And this page on the USCG site has "pertinent parts
of the Code of Federal Regulations to Recreational Boating
Safety": Federal Regulations
I'm still looking into this but thought these might be useful.
Thanks, delmarrey, for your links as well.
