-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy is amending its certifications and

Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy 
Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has 
determined that USS FORREST SHERMAN (DDG 98) is a vessel of the Navy 
which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply 
with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering with its 
special function as a naval ship. The intended effect of this rule is 
to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply.

DATES: Effective Date: April 12, 2005.

Secretary of the Navy, has certified that USS FORREST SHERMAN (DDG 98) 
is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and 
purpose, cannot fully comply with the following specific provisions of 
72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval
