    Re: Publication date of H.O 229

    You asked the wrong horse. When I started teaching the Power Squadron class in 1973, we used H.O. 229, and volumes were readily available. This was the first year it was used, switching from H.O. 211. Knowing how rapidly the Power Squadron makes decisions, I would presume that it existed before then. It certainly took some time to prepare and print the course material.

    since we have been kicking this question around I decided to go right to the horse's mouth and ask government office that published it when H.O 229 was first published. Below is this correspondence.
