Abstract

This project, done in conjunction with the United States Coast Guard (USCG), addressed the issue of passenger egress on small passenger vessels with canopies or enclosures. We investigated several factors involved in the design and operation of these vessels by interviewing USCG representatives and reviewing prior marine casualties. After completing this investigation, we developed recommendations and outlined areas for further research to assist the USCG in their mission of preserving passenger safety.
