This International Standard specifies requirements for the field of vision from the helm position, forward and astern, in small engine-driven craft of hull length up to 24 m.
The following craft are exempt from the application of this International Standard:
- tiller-steered craft (2.9) with maximum speed less than 10 kn
NOTE: Small engine-driven craft can be operated in a manner and at certain speeds causing trim angles such that vision
forward is temporarily obscured. This International Standard cannot assure that a craft can be operated without some temporary loss of vision from the helm position while operating at high trim angles during the transition from displacement to planing mode.
