32 CFR Part 706


Certifications and Exemptions Under the International Regulations 
for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972

AGENCY: Department of the Navy, DOD.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy is amending its certifications and 
exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing 
Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy 
Assistant Judge Advocate General of the Navy (Admiralty and Maritime 
Law) has determined that Landing Craft, Air Cushion (LCAC) 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: May 21, 2004.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Commander Gregg A. Cervi, JAGC, U.S. 
Navy, Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (Admiralty and Maritime 
Law), Office of the Judge Advocate General, 1322 Patterson Avenue, 
Suite 3000, Washington Navy Yard, DC 20374-5066, telephone 202-685-
5040.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authority granted in 33 
U.S.C. 1605, the Department of the Navy amends 32 CFR part 706. This 
amendment provides notice that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate 
General of the Navy (Admiralty and Maritime Law), under authority 
delegated by the Secretary of the Navy, has certified that Landing 
Craft, Air Cushion (LCAC) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its 
special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with the 
following specific provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering 
with its special function as a naval ship: Annex I paragraph 2(a)(i) 
pertaining to the height of the temporary masthead light above the 
hull, and paragraph 2(f)(i) pertaining to placement of the temporary 
masthead light above and clear of all obstructions. The Deputy 
Assistant Judge Advocate General of the Navy (Admiralty and Maritime 
Law) has also certified that the lights involved are located in closest 
possible compliance with the applicable 72 COLREGS requirements.
    Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR parts 
296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment 
prior to adoption is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public 
interest since it is based on technical findings that the placement of 
lights on this vessel in a manner differently from that prescribed 
herein will adversely affect the vessel's ability to perform its 
military functions.
