Changes To Implement on Your Small Vessel or Liveaboard Following The Deadly Fire Aboard The Conception
In September 2019, off the coast of California, a fire aboard the MV Conception, a 75-foot (23-meter) scuba diving liveaboard, broke out during the night, killing 33 passengers and one crew member. The captain and four crew members barely escaped.
We’ve prepared a summary of the findings and recommendations from the NTSB investigation. You will also find a brand new U.S. Coast Guard policy on lithium-ion batteries.
