Information Collection Request Title: National Recreational Boating Survey. OMB Control Number: 1625–0089. Summary: The Coast Guard National Recreational Boating Survey collects data on recreational boating participation and exposure to hazards. The goal is for the Office of Boating Safety to draw a general statistical profile of the U.S. recreational boating population. Of particular importance will be statistics on the type of boats used, the activities these boats are used for, boat operators’ knowledge of safety measures, and the duration of a typical boating day (referred to as ‘‘exposure’’). Exposure data will be used to derive a reliable measure of the risk associated with recreational boating that can be used in all jurisdictions. Need: The Federal Boat Safety Act of 1971 determines the framework of the Coast Guard recreational boating safety program. This program as set forth in 46 U.S.C., Chapter 131, requires the Coast Guard to ‘‘encourage greater State participation and uniformity in boating safety efforts, and particularly to permit the States to assume a greater share of boating safety education, assistance, and enforcement activities.’’ See 46 U.S.C. 13102. The Coast Guard Office of Boating Safety achieves these goals by providing timely and relevant information on boating activities that occur in each respective jurisdiction. The boating information provided by the Coast Guard enables each State agency to tailor and implement safety initiatives addressing specific needs of boaters in local jurisdictions. The primary objective of this collection is to provide the Coast Guard with the required information in a format suitable to effectively manage the program. Respondents: Recreational boating participants and owners of recreational vessels. Frequency: Every 2 years.
