The Scientific Boating Committe (SBC) is a policy making body for boating through UCSC's Institute of Marine Sciences (IMS), and is responsible to the Director of IMS.
The SBC provides focus and guidance to the Diving and Boating Officer, and has responsibility to: establish and/or approve training programs and boating projects; recommend changes in policy and procedure; review and approve proposals for research; recommend new equipment or techniques; review, revise, and assure compliance with the boating safety manual.
The SBC also acts as a Board of Appeal to consider boating-related problems; periodically reviews the Diving and Boating Officer's performance and program; takes disciplinary actions for unsafe practices; suspends boating programs which it considers to be unsafe or unwise; and serves as a Board of Investigation to inquire into the nature and cause of boating accidents and violations of the UCSC/IMS boating safety manual.
The SBC is made up of faculty, staff and students who use IMS boats for their research.. For more information about SBC meetings, minutes from previous meetings, UCSC/IMS boating policy, or for questions about the SBC, please contact the Diving and Boating Safety Program office (831-459-4286).
