I believe that government can be force for good, but USCG are really yanking my charter boat operators around. And I’m spending my week doing jobs that I should not have to bother with. I thought it would be a simple substitution of 185 lbs for 160 lbs with everything else kept the same. They are coming up with new hurdles that were never in original stability requirements. Everyone agrees that the new heavier passenger weight makes catamarans more stable. So why does trivia like not counting the number of soda cans aboard become grounds for losing your stability letter? Did they get a big funding increase there with orders to be difficult? I sound like a cranky old teapartier now.
