Amendment, Consolidated Delegation of Authority for the Office of Community Planning and Development, 24735-24736 [E6-6246]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 80 / Wednesday, April 26, 2006 / Notices voluntarily operate only in ‘‘reasonable operating conditions,’’ which, do not include the conditions listed below: • A small craft advisory is in effect; • Wind gusts over 30 knots (35 mph); • Waves over two feet; or • Sustained winds over 18 knots (21 mph). (2) Notify the OCMI if any significant structural or equipment changes have been made to the vessel since the stability was evaluated by the owner or operator and approved by the Coast Guard. The OCMI will determine whether to adjust the passenger load accordingly or require a new stability test. Owners and operators may consider voluntarily re-evaluating the vessel’s stability, which may include the performance of a new SST or PSST or a new evaluation according to 46 CFR subchapter S using an assumed weight per person of 185 pounds. In general, these voluntary interim guidelines reflect NTSB’s recommendations dated March 7, 2006, with one exception. The NTSB recommended the use of a method such as a load mark on the hull to determine the maximum safe load condition. The Coast Guard is evaluating these loading marks to determine if they are adequate to accurately assess whether or not the total test weight is exceeded, which could create an overload condition. Additionally, the Coast Guard will consider including a method of periodically updating the average passenger weight as part of the upcoming rule. The Coast Guard will perform outreach to owners and operators of all such vessels as soon as possible to advise them of this notice. Vessel owners and licensed operators are encouraged to comply with these guidelines until new regulations are promulgated. Local OCMIs are always available for assistance if the need arises. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Upcoming Rule The Coast Guard is in the process of preparing a rule that would amend its regulations to address the stability issues caused by increases in passenger and vessel weight. This rule would apply to the same group of small vessels covered by the voluntary procedures described above, as well as all pontoon vessels. The Coast Guard tentatively intends that the rule’s provisions be, for the most part, similar to those of the voluntary procedures above. The rule may also include provisions explicitly providing for prioritizing stability evaluations among categories of vessels, VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:58 Apr 25, 2006 Jkt 208001 including the performance of new SSTs or PSSTs. Dated: April 20, 2006. Thomas H. Gilmour, Rear Admiral, Assistant Commandant for Prevention.
