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.

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′113⁄8″, 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 E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1
