Scroll down and you'll see that they say 2012 is still the "current version". 2014/15 has not made it through legislation yet.

Minor point, as either way the text in question is pretty much identical, just a matter of numbering.
Yes, 2012 is the current version; you were quoting an earlier version -- who knows how much earlier. They are not pretty much identical.

The 2014/15 book has been issued, but they don't revise every standard every year. In the 2014/15 book, this standard has a 2012 revision date. I quoted the current (2012) version. I am a member of ABYC...

Re: CNG in a Sealed, Vented Locker

Interesting, in the most recent BoatUS mag, she stated that a longer waterline boat, that increases hull speed from 7 to 8 (or so, I forget) allows a day sail to increase from 25 to 35 miles. Wow, a 15% increase in speed allows a 40% increase in distance? The standards for "Technical Editor" don't include "technical expertise."
She must also live where the days are very short! At 8 knots average, a reasonable "day sail" is more like 60 to 70 miles IME, with another 15-20 miles available to early risers.

But then, since when does one read sailing mags for expert advice?

I don'r see how an "accurate" statement can be misleading to a literate person.

That hysterical laughter you hear as you sail a way in your "new" boat ..... is the seller.
