ABYC Takes Lead in Battling Aquatic Invasive Species 
Aquatic invasive species (AIS) are a significant environmental threat and create a negative boater experience. Seeing the connection between boats and the risk of spreading AIS, ABYC proactively hosted the Aquatic Invasive Species Summit: Boat Design and Construction in Consideration of AIS.  
The AIS Summit focused on identifying and vetting opportunities related to boat design and construction, component/system design and installation, engine and propulsion systems, and trailer design and construction.  
Norm Schultz of Trade Only Today wrote a two part blog about the event and the issues of AIS. Click here to read more about the Summit and the results.

Snell & Wilmer Blog – Product Liability Update
What’s The “Internet of Things” and What Are Its Legal Challenges?

The “Internet of Things” is the universe of smart devices that talk to the internet or to one another. The devices have unique identifiers and the ability to automatically transfer data over a network on their own, without human interaction.

Some examples in the home include WiFi-connected home security systems, thermostats, cameras, refrigerators, and wearable technology. Some industrial examples include smart grid utilities, patient monitoring, connected commercial vehicles, and smart buildings and factories. Cisco estimates that there are about 200 connectable things per person in the world today. By 2020, it’s estimated that 50 billion things will be connected to the internet. Click here to read more.

BRP-Evinrude showcases biobutanol during test rides at Miami International Boat Show
Through its Evinrude brand, BRP will be showcasing the alternative fuel biobutanol, a second-generation biofuel, during test rides at the Miami International Boat Show.
BRP’s Evinrude engineers have been collaborating for four years with the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and several engine and boat manufacturers in the testing of advanced alternative fuels for use in recreational marine engines and boats.
Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and Argonne National Laboratory, Evinrude has been integral to the four year comprehensive testing program which includes the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) and other boat and engine manufacturers across the industry.
“Boaters have the opportunity to test how the fuel works first hand here at the show, and that’s definitely part of the equation in creating interest and demand for this next-generation biofuel,” said Jeff Wasil, engineering manager in emissions testing, certification and regulatory development for BRP-Evinrude.
