BoatU.S. made five appointments to its National Advisory Council.

They are: Nicholas Kerigan, national commodore of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary; Jim Graybeal, president of the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators; Creighton Maynard, chief commander of U.S. Power Squadrons; Linda Bendsen, president of Recreational Boaters of California; and Bob Adriance, editor of Seaworthy magazine.

The appointments were announced last week at the council's annual meeting in Fort Myers Beach, Fla.

"We're counting on the unique perspectives and experience that these new council members will bring to the table," BoatU.S. president Nancy Michelman said in a statement. "This group helps us take a critical look at the 'big picture,' craft policy, understand trends, and provide direction on how BoatU.S. can best meet the needs of today's boaters, sailors and anglers."

The council was created more than 30 years ago to advise and guide the association on federal and state issues critical to recreational boaters.
