Who We Are
The Scientific Boating Safety Association (SBSA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating safe boating practices and to minimize accidental injury among those using boats for research and training. To meet this mission, SBSA members provide or make available initial training and refresher courses, share expertise, advice and recommendations, formulate guidelines and procedures, and publish a safety manual with appendices for local areas. Our goal is to ensure that scientific boating is conducted in a safe and effective manner.
Scientific boaters and educators not affiliated with an Organizational Member as well as those with research boating experience now have a say in national scientific boating policy.
Membership is $25/year. Individual Members do have a vote in SBSA policy and BoD elections. Click here for the application form
