The vessel’s primary purpose is to give architectural tours on the Chicago River. This route requires passing beneath a number of low bridges, and the clearance does not allow the masthead light to be mounted as high as required for full compliance with Annex I of the Inland Rules Act. The Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard, certifies that full compliance with the Inland Rules Act would interfere with the special functions/intent of the vessel and would not significantly enhance the safety of the vessel’s operation. Placing the masthead light in the required position would interfere with the vessel’s ability to navigate the Chicago River, which has several low bridges. The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the CHICAGO’S LEADING LADY to deviate from the requirements set forth in Annex I of the Inland Rules Act, and place its masthead light on the pilothouse visor, at a height of 13′–7′ above the main deck.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    A Certificate of Alternative Compliance, as allowed for under 33 
U.S.C. 1605(c) and 33 CFR 81.18, has been issued for the passenger 
vessel CHICAGO'S LEADING LADY. The vessel's primary purpose is to give 
architectural tours on the Chicago River. This route requires passing 
beneath a number of low bridges, and the clearance does not allow the 
masthead light to be mounted as high as required for full compliance 
with Annex I of the Inland Rules Act.
    The Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard, certifies that full compliance 
with the Inland Rules Act would interfere with the special functions/
intent of the vessel and would not significantly enhance the safety of 
the vessel's operation. Placing the masthead light in the required 
position would interfere with the vessel's ability to navigate the 
Chicago River, which has several low bridges.
    The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the CHICAGO'S 
LEADING LADY to deviate from the requirements set forth in Annex I of 
the Inland Rules Act, and place its masthead light on the pilothouse 
visor, at a height of 13'-7' above the main deck.
    This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1605(c), and 33 
CFR 81.18.

    Dated: June 2, 2011.
