Abstract:

These Control Station Design Concepts were developed by the U.S. Coast Guard to assist boatbuilders and designers in planning the control stations of various types of boats. These concepts are non regulatory. Instead they are suggestions based on human factors engineering techniques which if followed will provide adequate visibility, space and control orientations for 90 of the user population. At the same time the designer will be minimizing safety hazards within the control station. Flexibility should be used in applying these concepts to individual designs.
