NOTE: Back in 2001 we removed these boating environmental and other files to conserve server space and meet bandwidth limit. On 2 May 2007 we reinstalled them. Several of these boat emission files are now pretty old. The EPA documents may now even be available from the EPA site but were not way back when we first placed them here. However, they do indicate some of the excellent boat and marine market statistical data available in EPA reports.

This page will be the access link to files stored on our site for downloading. Most of them are either too large for normal viewing or in a format that is not browser compatible.

The results were published in Sept. 1993. The files are in Lotus .wk1 Format and are quite large. They contain a great deal of information about the sizes and types of boats in certain areas. The first file covers 24 NERVES areas and the second file covers 9 more areas. The file is a word perfect 5.1 file that describes the spreadsheet columns of the first two files in depth. It unzip to a 400k file that covers some other spreadsheets as well. Just look through it for the portion on the marine engine spreadsheets.

The U.S. Court of Appeals ruled on the Steven Lough vs. Brunswick Case (brass seal patent) June 12, 1996. That 36 page ruling is provided below in Microsoft Word format (.doc) and in Word Perfect format (.wpd). The .doc version is the original. The .wpd version messes up a few of the page breaks, but it is all there. The ruling is should be very interesting to all inventor types as it focuses upon when your invention is considered disclosed to the public.
