SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose A Certificate of Alternative Compliance, as allowed for under Title 33, Code of Federal Regulation, Parts 81 and 89, has been issued for the offshore supply vessel CALLAIS SEARCHER, O.N. 1226876. The horizontal distance VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:44 Jul 12, 2010 Jkt 220001 between the forward and aft masthead lights may be 20′-85⁄8″. 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, and Annex I, Section 84.05(a) of the Inland Rules Act, would result in an aft masthead light location directly over the cargo deck where it would interfere with loading and unloading operations. The offset from centerline of the RAM/NUC lights may be 3′. Offsetting the RAM/NUC lights 2 meters from the centerline as required by Annex I paragraph 3(c) the 72 COLREGS and Annex I, Section 84.05(c) of the Inland rules Act would place them in an exposed position beyond the width of the aft end of the pilothouse. A Certificate of Alternative Compliance, as allowed for under Title 33, Code of Federal Regulation, Parts 81 and 89, has been issued for the offshore supply vessel CALLAIS SEARCHER, O.N. 1226876. 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, and Annex I, Section 84.05(a) of the Inland Rules Act as well as the offset of the RAM/NUC lights to deviate from the requirements of Annex I, paragraph 3(c) of 72 COLREGS and Annex I, Section 84.05(c) of the Inland Rules Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background and Purpose

    A Certificate of Alternative Compliance, as allowed for under Title 
33, Code of Federal Regulation, Parts 81 and 89, has been issued for 
the offshore supply vessel MARIE ELISE, O.N. 1223872. Full compliance 
with 72 COLREGS and the Inland Rules Act would hinder the vessel's 
ability to conduct loading and unloading operations, and would hinder 
the vessel's ability to maneuver within close proximity to offshore 
platforms. 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, and Annex I, Section 84.05(a) of the Inland Rules 
Act, would result in an aft masthead light location directly over the 
aft cargo deck where it would interfere with loading and unloading 
operations and would make the mast highly susceptible to damage during 
such operations. The horizontal distance between the forward and aft 
masthead lights may be 19'11\3/8\'', placing the aft masthead light 
over the pilot house.
    In addition, due to the design of the vessel it would be difficult 
and impractical to build a supporting structure that would put the side 
lights within 10% inboard from the greatest breadth of the vessel, as 
required by Annex I, paragraph 3(b) of the 72 COLREGS and Annex I, 
Section 84.05(b), of the Inland Rules Act. Compliance with the rule 
would cause the side lights to be in a location which will be highly 
susceptible to damage from offshore platforms. Locating the side lights 
7'\1/4\'' inboard from the greatest breadth of the vessel on the pilot 
house will provide a sheltered

location for the lights and allow maneuvering within close proximity to 
offshore platforms.
    The Certificate of Alternative Compliance allows for the placement 
of the side lights to deviate from requirements set forth in Annex I, 
paragraph 3(b) of 72 COLREGS, and Annex I, paragraph 84.05(b) of the 
Inland Rules Act. 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, and Annex I, Section 84.05(a) of the Inland Rules Act.
    This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1605(c), and 33 
CFR 81.18.
