    USCG Recognizes NEW Sea-Doo iBR Technology

    Coast Guard presents Boating Safety Award to BRP for Safety Initiative
    WASHINGTON, D.C. – The United States Coast Guard Office of Auxiliary and Boating Safety recognizes Bombardier Recreational Products with its Boating Safety Award.
    The award is given to BRP for its commitment to improving boating safety through the introduction of an unprecedented electronically controlled hand-braking system on two of its most popular and biggest selling 2009 Sea-Doo® personal watercraft models.
    This intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR™) braking innovation adds tremendously to the safety provided by the off-throttle and off-power steering systems that have been introduced to the personal watercraft arena. It allows the operator to stop the personal watercraft within a remarkably shorter distance and maintain much better control of the vessel.
    The Coast Guard is optimistic that this innovative braking system will decrease the number of personal watercraft accidents, and the unfortunate deaths and injuries that can result from these accidents.
    “The braking capability of this new design is not just an evolutionary improvement but a revolutionary improvement to the safety of these vessels,” said Capt. Mark Rizzo, chief of the Coast Guard Office of Auxiliary and Boating Safety. “Although this new braking system should help prevent some accidents, the Coast Guard continues its efforts to educate PWC riders to keep a safe distance from other vessels.”
    The U.S. Coast Guard's Boating Safety Office is dedicated to reducing loss of life, injuries, and property damage that occur on U.S. waterways by improving the knowledge, skills, and abilities of recreational boaters.

    strange how R-pot came up with this back in the 90's, and the manufacturers threatened to DEEP-6 him if he didn't take it off the market ASAP.

    Now it's an "Innovation."

    Ok I am a big Sea Doo fan, but how can two models that have yet to be released, be considered "Best Selling". Sure the RXT and GTX Limited name plates have sold many boats, but the RXT iS and GTX Limited iS have yet to make a single public sale.
