WASHINGTON - The National Boating Safety Advisory Council has issued a set of resolutions directing the U.S. Coast Guard to analyze and address propeller strike prevention efforts underway in the recreational boating industry, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reported yesterday.

The resolutions in summary can be found here.

Many of the resolutions have to do with the use of kill switches.  We have posted several articles about kill switches and how they could have saved injury and loss of life.
