Welcome to the On-Water SAIL Skills-Standards (Version I) Validation Survey

6% of survey complete.
Dear Recreational Boating Enthusiast,

You are invited to confirm the contents of a version I set of entry-level, skill-based SAIL boat standards for recreational boat operators. These standards were agreed to by a national team of 43-Subject Matter Experts empaneled using the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) guidelines to ensure a balanced, collaborative and consensus-based approach.

The results of this survey will be used to validate and update the set of version I SAIL standards for recreational boat operation. The outcome of this process will be version II out of the IV versions planned in the overall SAIL standards validation process. In this survey, you will be asked to:
  • Provide individual contact information;
  • Describe your recreational boating experience;
  • Identify boater education and instructor certifications;
  • Take a brief skill-based standard composition tutorial; and
  • Complete the survey.

We anticipate it should take approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete this survey.

Thank you for helping all of us to make boating a more safe and enjoyable pastime on our nation’s waterways!
