The Small Craft Technical and Research Committee is dedicated to ensuring that the technical knowledge base of SNAME is readily available to the designers, builders, and operators of small craft, including recreational craft, workboats, and small military craft.
To this end, the Committee and its panels develops and publishes bulletins including standards, focused topical technical guides, specialized courses, other educational resources and archival collections of SNAME technical material, promotes original research as applicable, and produces symposia. The Committee cooperates with other Technical and Research Committees and panels to jointly produce material for small craft that includes the range of expertise of these other committees and panels.
The Committee also works with other organizations and publications in the small craft field to promote SNAME and to cooperate to produce courses, seminars and other material to enhance knowledge of naval architecture and marine engineering applicable to small craft.
