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 NOAA research vessel FSV–6 RUBEN LASKER. The vessel’s primary purpose is to conduct oceanographic research around the world. The unique design of the vessel did not lend itself to 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 special purpose fishing and stern light in the required position would interfere with the vessel’s science and boat/davit operations. The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the NOAA research vessel FSV–6 RUBEN LASKER to deviate from the requirements set forth in Annex I of the Inland Rules Act by placing its special purpose fishing lights on the main masthead at FR50 and the stern light at the stern at FR100. This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1605(c), and 33 CFR 81.18. Dated: May 10, 2013. S.E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: 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 M/V CHARLEVOIX. The vessel’s primary purpose is a cable guided passenger car ferry that operates on the South Arm of Lake Superior in Charlevoix, Michigan. The unique design of the vessel did not lend itself to 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 single masthead and stern lights on this cable guided passenger and vehicle ferry would obstruct the vehicle deck. The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the M/V CHARLEVOIX to deviate from the requirements set forth in Annex I of the Inland Rules Act, by installing two Masthead lights for each direction of travel as near as practical to the vessel centerline and two sets of stern lights for each direction of travel as the aft and forward end of the deckhouse.

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 NOAA research 
vessel FSV-6 RUBEN LASKER. The vessel's primary purpose is to conduct 
oceanographic research around the world. The unique design of the 
vessel did not lend itself to 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 special purpose fishing and stern 
light in the required position would interfere with the vessel's 
science and boat/davit operations.
    The Certificate of Alternative Compliance authorizes the NOAA 
research vessel FSV-6 RUBEN LASKER to deviate from the requirements set 
forth in Annex I of the Inland Rules Act by placing its special purpose 
fishing lights on the main masthead at FR50 and the stern light at the 
stern at FR100.
    This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1605(c), and 33 
CFR 81.18.

    Dated: May 10, 2013.
