Pending Out of the Water Survival Craft requirement

Our united position for this request is that we feel there is no need to change the safety equipment we currently use as our industry has proven to be one of the safest passenger carrying industries in the country. The safety equipment plus the required monthly safety drills we undertake provide a more than adequate safe environment for the passengers and crew we carry. The Coast Guard “Survival Craft Safety” report verifies that our industry is safe and that the use of out of the water survival craft will not provide any more safety than we currently provide.
