SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose The offshore supply vessel GRANT CANDIES will be used for offshore supply operations. Full compliance with 72 COLREGS and Inland Rules Act will hinder the vessel’s ability to maneuver within close proximity of offshore platforms and conduct helicopter operations. The forward masthead light may be located forward of the helideck 10.37 meters above the hull. Placing the forward masthead light at the height as required by Annex I, paragraph 2(a) of the 72 COLREGS would result in a masthead light location that would interfere with helideck operations. In addition, the horizontal distance between the forward and aft masthead lights may be 32.845 meters. Placing the aft masthead light at the horizontal distance from the forward masthead light as required by Annex I, paragraph 3(a) of the 72 COLREGS would result in an aft masthead light location directly over the aft cargo deck where it would interfere with loading and unloading operations. Furthermore, the sidelights may be placed 2.417 meters above the forward masthead light. Placing the sidelights lower than the forward masthead light as required by Annex I, paragraph 2(g) of 72 COLREGS and Annex I, paragraph 84.03(g) of the Inland Rules Act, would subject them to interference from the deck lights and obstruction by the helideck. The Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the vertical placement of the forward masthead light to deviate from requirements set forth in Annex I, paragraph 2(a) of 72 COLREGS. In addition, the Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the horizontal separation of the forward and aft masthead lights to deviate from the requirements of Annex I, paragraph 3(a) of 72 COLREGS. Furthermore, the Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the placement of the sidelights to deviate from requirements set forth in Annex I, paragraph 2(g) of 72 COLREGS and Annex I, paragraph 84.03(g) of the Inland Rules Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    The offshore supply vessel GRANT CANDIES will be used for offshore 
supply operations. Full compliance with 72 COLREGS and Inland Rules Act 
will hinder the vessel's ability to maneuver within close proximity of 
offshore platforms and conduct helicopter operations. The forward 
masthead light may be located forward of the helideck 10.37 meters 
above the hull. Placing the forward masthead light at the height as 
required by Annex I, paragraph 2(a) of the 72 COLREGS would result in a 
masthead light location that would interfere with helideck operations.
    In addition, the horizontal distance between the forward and aft 
masthead lights may be 32.845 meters. Placing the aft masthead light at 
the horizontal distance from the forward masthead light as required by 
Annex I, paragraph 3(a) of the 72 COLREGS would result in an aft 
masthead light location directly over the aft cargo deck where it would 
interfere with loading and unloading operations.
    Furthermore, the sidelights may be placed 2.417 meters above the 
forward masthead light. Placing the sidelights lower than the forward 
masthead light as required by Annex I, paragraph 2(g) of 72 COLREGS and 
Annex I, paragraph 84.03(g) of the Inland Rules Act, would subject them 
to interference from the deck lights and obstruction by the helideck.
    The Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the vertical 
placement of the forward masthead light to deviate from requirements 
set forth in Annex I, paragraph 2(a) of 72 COLREGS. In addition, the 
Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the horizontal 
separation of the forward and aft masthead lights to deviate from the 
requirements of Annex I, paragraph 3(a) of 72 COLREGS. Furthermore, the 
Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the placement of the 
sidelights to deviate from requirements set forth in Annex I, paragraph 
2(g) of 72 COLREGS and Annex I, paragraph 84.03(g) of the Inland Rules 
Act.
