Charles Ernest “Charlie” Game II, an industry veteran engineer, died November 7 at a nursing and rehabilitation facility in North Carolina. He was 77.

Game began his career working for Alcoa Aluminum and later as director of product reliability and standards for Hatteras Yachts.

In 1994, he started E.C. Game Engineering as owner and president. He was a registered professional engineer in both Tennessee and North Carolina.

Game was appointed to the American Boat & Yachting Council technical board of directors, the marine technical board of the Society of Automotive Engineers, the National Marine Manufacturers Association, U.S. Coast Guard National Boating and Safety Advisory Council, and the National Fire Protection Association.

“Charlie was a good friend and resource to many of us over the years and will be greatly missed,” said ABYC president John Adey in a statement. “Charlie has taught so many of us so much over the years. His commitment to safe boating and the work ABYC does cannot be overstated.”
